Chechen Poets

The Wikipedia wiki on Chechen poets already has 5 entries - more are likely to be added. The poets represented so far include Raisa Akhmatova, Abuzar Aydamirov, Musa Geshaev, Hasan Israilov and Zelimkhan Yandarbiyev.

It's to be hoped that at some stage an English-language anthology of Chechen poetry will be forthcoming from an enterprising UK or US publisher.
