Résumé : This chapter considers the place in the Leningrad Cultural Underground of the poetArkady Dragomoshchenko (1946–2012), one of the most important Russian poets of thepost-war generation and, arguably, Russia’s most important global poet of the post-Sovietage. Although an essential presence in the Leningrad cultural avant-garde of the 1970sand 1980s, he was never part of any schools or movements. While his work transcendedthe generic, formal, and thematic boundaries of what was written by his peers at thetime, it also transcended the boundaries of the Russian poetic tradition. The chapter examinesDragomoshchenko’s lifelong preoccupation with the groundless foundations oflanguage as it situates his unique poetics in the context of his close engagement with literary,musical, and visual experiments of the Leningrad underground and identifies theroots of his interest in global poetics.
