The soul of Russian avant-garde

Today’s post is about the genius of Russian Absurd – Daniil Kharms (1905-1942). I am only interested in “nonsense”; only in that which makes no practical sense. I am interested in life, only in its absurd manifestations. #quote He is mostly known for his whimsical poems for children, but his heart belongs to absurd.
