Andrei Khadanovich

Andrei Khadanovich (1973), Belarusian: Андрэй Хадановіч
Known as one the most innovative Belarusian poets as well as a literary scientist, translator from French and Slavonic languages and a songwriter, Khadanovich is also the  head of the Belarusian PEN-center.
Poetry writings of Khadanovich are specific for their original character, the critics also pay attention to his experimentation with their form and style. Khadanovich likes to connect the "high" and the "low" genres. Besides that, he also experimented with the limerick genre and, in 2005, released a collection named "Countrymen, or Belarusian limericks" (Землякі, альбо Беларускія лімерыкі), where, with the use of the precise poetic form and absurd content, he presented an original view over the Belarusian cities and countryside. 10 collections of poetry writings were published under his name, among which a collection of intellectual and, at the same time, optimistic and accessible poetry named "Old Poems" (Старыя вершы, 2003), or a collection named after the "Letters From Under the Gallows" by Kastus Kalinouski, a national hero and a revolutionary, the "Letters From under the Blanket" (Лісты з-пад коўдры, 2004), as well as the collection of vers libres written in Berlin, named "Berlibres" (Berlibry, 2008) and others.

Khadanovichs poetry combines modern elements of the urban dialect with the variety of the Belarusian language and is rich in stylistic experiments.
