Contents

Education

1975 - 1979. Moscow State University, faculty of journalism.

1982 - 1987. Maxim Gorky Literature Institute, faculty of poetry.

Occupation

Poet, singer-songwriter.

Literary movement

Neoclassicism, Modernism

Since the late 1980s readers have ranked Boris Golovin's poetry as one of the more influential in the neoclassical movement. But the poet himself often emphasized that, strictly speaking, the word 'neoclassical' suffers from tautology. Classical poetry as such descends from the Golden Age; its distinctive and unique feature artificially fits in the remote past and the future, evermore new and old simultaneously. This idea is close to Albert Einstein's statement, that our being does not exist at all, there is only past and future permanently flowing into one another. Boris Golovin has always strongly declined any association with literary grouping.
