Vladimir Bibikhin — Olga Sedakova
And the word answers the word. Letters (1992–2004)


The correspondence between the poet Olga Sedakova and the philosopher Vladimir Bibikhin is marked by a special trust not only in the interlocutors’ ability to understand across barriers, but in its very essence. This trust is inseparable from inspiration, which turns letters into an event of literature. A variety of topics are discussed — political, cultural, private — but the main content of the correspondence is life in freedom, not bound by agreement with “low truths.”
