Tatiana Shcherbina has been called one of the most significant figures in contemporary Russian poetry. In her recent poetry the elegant and ironic narrator meditates on love, disappointment, and loss against the backdrop of Russia's social collapse. Sometimes her poems take the form of overtly political statements, while sometimes new capitalist Russia is reflected merely in the emotional plane. Distinctly modern, she writes about sitting in front of a computer gazing into the Microsoft Windows, and her work is filled with supermarkets, printing cartridges, TV, make-up, and the environment. But her writing also reflects an insider's awareness of Russian society, often challenging its patriarchal and chauvinist attitudes. Her playfully meditative essays-on Russia, life, God, and everything between-complement her sophisticated and self-aware poetry.
