Text:
Человек – это не смысл, а тело, полное страстных сухожилий, ущелий с
кровью, холмов, отверстий, наслаждений и забвения.
(Чевенгур)

Tchelovek eto ne smysl, a telo, polnoye strastnykh sukhozhyliy, uscheliy s


krov’yu, kholmov, otverstiy, naslazhdeniy i zabveniya.

The Man is not a mind but a body packed with passionate tendons, blood-filled
canyons, hills, openings, pleasures and oblivion.
(From Chevengur – Unpublished translation by R. & E.Chandler)
Громадный, опухший от ветра и горя голый человек, умирал по мелким
частям на ходу жизни.
(Котлован)

Gromadniy, opukhshiy ot vetra i gorya goliy tchelovek, umiral po melkim


chastiam na khodu zhizni.

A huge naked man, puffed up from the wind and his own grief, was dying but by
little bit, as his life went by.
(From The Foundation Pit – tr. R.Chandler & G.Smith, Harvill, 1996)

Человек добыл себя откуда-то своими одинокими силами.


(Чевенгур)

Tchelovek dobyl sebia otkuda-to svoimi odinokimi salami.

A man obtained himself from somewhere by his own solitary force.


(From Chevengur – Unpublished translation by R. & E. Chandler)
