It is not a secret that it is almost impossible to translate anything more complex then ‘Hello’ from one language to another. Translating poems is often considered to be the most difficult tasks. That is, probably, why we don’t see good translations of poems so often.

Today I came across a few excellent translations (here and here) of Vladimir Vysotsky songs and poems that were done by Andrey Kneller.
