Pray to the Empty Wells is a bilingual collection of poems by award-winning contemporary Ukrainian author Iryna Shuvalova. The forty-four poems reflect the central section of Shuvalova's forthcoming book of Ukrainian-language poems of the same title. Shuvalova's writing is rich, corporeal, and metamorphic, as well as being deeply rooted in Ukraine's folk culture, re-mixing its traditional spirituality with pulsating eroticism and acute awareness of the natural environment.
