I would like to offer answer to question: Who is this Livry?
Anatoly Livry is renown Russian writer Kozma Prutkov reincarnated in Sorbone!
Given his background in Slavic Studies and laconic style Dr Livry should invigorate us by translating his famous predecessor into modern French and, without further delay, by translating himself into Russian for the pleasure of reading public.
As the genius said: 'Better say little, but well.'

Dear Anatoly,
Since your last note to Nabokv-L was the last, feel free to send to me (gshiman@optonline.net) your writings self-translated to Russian.
