Yevtushenko, Yevgeny

Yevtushenko, the best-known Russian poet of the post-Stalin
generation, has lots in common with Dylan. Both are fighters,
risk-takers and noted innovators of rhyme. Both their mothers begged
them to stop writing poetry; neither obeyed. Both have run afoul of
the orthodoxies that claimed them as spokesmen. Each has made a career
of opening windows in the walls of secular materialism. Dylan
name-checked "the melodies of Yevtushenko" on the sleeve of The Times
They Are A-Changin', and he toured the Soviet Union at Yevtushenko's
invitation in 1985.
