No, this is incorrect. Yevtushenko died in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He was a faculty member at the University there for many years.
I'm sorry - he died on April 1st in the US. That was the point of my comment; that this notable poet responsible for this very moving poem was living int he uS and had passed away very recently. I am curious about your pedantic and aggressive" this is incorrect."
I saw him on a US television show back then (David Susskind?) and I was surprised the commies had let him out.
"...pedantic and aggressive..."? Nothing of the sort was intended -- sorry. The post said Yevtushenko died in Texas which was indeed incorrect. He died in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I was correcting the record, plainly and simply.
