Jakobson reads Khlebnikov

As a follow-up to my recent posts on Khlebnikov (it should have been a prequel), I’m linking to three short audio clips. This is Roman Jakobson reading poetry by Khlebnikov in 1954, more than 40 years after first meeting the poet.

These are relatively early works. On the other hand, almost all of the poems in Khlebnikov’s Creations were composed within a span of less than 15 years (1908-22).
