Arsenij Rovinski [Арсений Ровинский] was born in 1968 in Kharkiv, now Ukraine; since 1985 he lived in Moscow as a student of Moscow State Pedagogical University, department of history, then wa conscripted to the military service. In 1991 he left Russia and settled in Denmark. The friendship with a fellow immigrant Feodor Svarovsky (which later went back to Russia) lead to the beginning of the poetry group then joined by Israeli poet Leonid Schwab; all the three pretended to create so called ‘new epics’, i.e. rather short narrative poems with somehow bizarre, fictitious protagonists which were intended to represent together a compound picture of present-day world.

Rovinsky’s poetry was first published in 1997 in Moscow, next year he obtained a special diploma at ‘Teneta’, the most voluminous Internet literary competition of the day. The first chapbook of his poetry appeared in 1999, the first full-length book was published on 2004, in Moscow again, and short-listed for Andrei Bely Prize, the most prestigious independent literary award of present-day Russia. Then a collective book of Rovinski, Svarovsky & Schwab and one more personal collection followed. Rovinski’s poetry is an in-depth study of the concepts of alienness and non-belonging.
