"Every execution is a carnival"

A very lovely and striking piece at the NYRB by Jose Manuel Prieto on translating Osip Mandelstam's "Epigram Against Stalin" from Russian to Spanish (subscriber only).

Not related, but one of my other favorite things in the NYRB recently was Theo Cote's amazing photograph of Lydia Davis and her extraordinary black cat!
