GUEST,Murray on Saltspring Luka Mudishchev - Russian bawdy poem (8) Luka Mudishchev - Russian bawdy poem 11 Apr 08


A long time ago I was at the University of Washington, Seattle, where we were studying Russian. Someone produced [from somewhere] a little mimeographed dictionary of Russian swear-words, with illustrative examples, quoting among other things a Russian obscene poem called "Luka Mudishchev". - This is now available in quite a few places, but I'm looking for (a) the dictionary, (b) the source of the translations therein. The bits of Luka were rendered into English rhyme, very successfully and amusingly. Any comments?
