Sarah Crown on Sasha Dugdale's The Estate. According to legend, in the winter of 1825 Pushkin set out from his estate to visit friends in St Petersburg, but when a hare ran across his horse's path he took it as a poor omen and returned home. His friends, meanwhile, took part in the Decembrist uprising and were exiled or executed.

Sasha Dugdale's poems explore the mysterious solitudes of individual lives with tender, unsparing lucidity. The book opens with a sequence written at the Pushkin family estate. The great Russian poet, setting out to St Petersburg, turns back when a hare runs in front of his horse: the superstitious act saves his life. Such chance or fated moments where paths cross are at the heart of the collection.

Filled with striking imagery, this book of poems demonstrates the development of the poet’s voice from her first collection. The verses are permeated with allusions to Russian literature and classic myths and take inspiration from subjects as disparate as motherhood, art, and war.
