    Thanks to the intervention of well-known Belorussian writers he was able to complete his studies in Brest, and later held various posts including one at a foundry, as a secondary school teacher, as a text editor for a publishing house and as literary editor for several newspapers.

    In 1990 Rasanau was awarded the Yanka Kupala Prize, the national prize for Belorussian literature. However, his commitment to the Belorussian language was only briefly recognized by the officials. Shortly thereafter the pro-Russian politics of the dictator Lukashenko was again to make him a dissident.

    Today Rasanaŭ lives as a freelance author and translator in Minsk. He is regarded equally as a poetic authority as well as one of the leading representatives of the Belorussian cultural and literal revival.

Der Waldweg

Chwedarka der Bärtige und ich fahren mit einem
Fuhrwerk auf dem uralten Waldweg.

Knotige Wurzeln treten aus der Erde wie jeman
des Schreie und Vorwürfe.

Chwedarka der Bärtige erzählt, was alles hier vor
Jahrhunderten geschah:
wie Menschen bedrängt wurden von Menschen,
wie Menschen beraubt wurden von Menschen,
wie Menschen von Menschen getötet wurden...

Ich weiß, sagt er, noch das wenigste, aber alles,
was hier war, kommt haarklein heraus beim Gericht,
bei jenem Schreckensgericht, wo die menschlichen
