Irina Ratushinskaya will forever be known as the poet who was arrested for her writing
sentanced to a Soviet prison camp. And who continued in the face of persecution to write new poems. She wrote them on bars of soap, memorised them, and then washed away the ‘evidence’. Irina is a recognised poet in both the International community and the United States. Many of Irina’s poems have the earmarks of a well-seasoned traveller: and eagerness for adventure, melancholy good-byes, and a faith forged from life’s journey.
