Igor Irteniev is one of the best known and loved poets of contemporary Russia, the leading light in the school of "ironic poetry". His works have already become real classics. Igor Irteniev was the first in modern-day Russia to have revived the genre of short satirical stories in verse (поэтический фельетон). He is also a columnist at "Gazeta.Ru", has written song lyrics for a number of theatre productions, and some of you may fondly remember his character "Poet-Pravdorub" in Viktor Shenderovich's sharp political satire "Itogo" ("Итого") on Russian TV in the 1990s.
