Vladimir Sorokin was born in a small town outside of Moscow in 1955. He trained as an engineer at the Moscow Institute of Oil and Gas, but turned to art and writing, becoming a major presence in the Moscow underground of the 1980s. His work was banned in the Soviet Union, and his first novel, The Queue, was published by the famed émigré dissident Andrei Sinyavsky in France in 1983. In 1992, Sorokin’s Collected Stories was nominated for the Russian Booker Prize; in 1999, the publication of the controversial novel Blue Lard, which included a sex scene between clones of Stalin and Khrushchev, led to public demonstrations against the book and to demands that Sorokin be prosecuted as a pornographer; in 2001, he received the Andrei Biely Award fo ...more

Vladimir Sorokin, Day of the Oprichnik

“Hoy atravesaremos el éter,
las transparentes rutas celestes,
volando en derechura al occidente, al lejano país,
al lejano y ubérrimo país
que se extiende allende la Mar Océana,
que se extiende y florece
y rebosa de oro y plata y metales preciosos,
el lejano país donde se alzan altas torres,
las más altas de la tierra,
altas y puntiagudas,
desafiando al cielo, horadándolo soberbias.
Torres habitadas por gentes libertinas,
desvergonzadas, impías, corrompidas gentes,
sin temor alguno del Supremo Hacedor,
hordas impúdicas, ruines,
que chapotean en su iniquidad,
y en placeres pecaminosos se revuelcan,
y se burlan de lo santo. Se burlan y ríen
al amparo de Satán,
escupiendo sus miasmas a la Santa Rusia,
a la Santa y Ortodoxa Rusia,
pasando entre burlas los Días de la Verdad ofendiendo a la Verdad,
ensuciando el nombre divino.

(...)

Adivinábamos, veíamos en medio de la Mar Océana
el enorme buque de seis puentes
que navegaba implacable hacia el Este
procedente del país infame y felón,
cargado de mercancías envilecedoras,
cargado de propaganda subversiva,
cargado de gente impía, podridas meretrices,
palomas sucias.
Rezumante de jolgorios demoníacos,
rezumante de placeres satánicos,
rezumante de perfumes de lupanar.”
Vladimir Sorokin, Day of the Oprichnik
