‘Aviation of Transformation’ is long poem with words that are very hard to translate. The subject and content is completely absurd and deals with a woman falling and a pilot’s moustache. Though strange and unreal, the great absurdist poet Daniil Kharms (1905-1942) is able to clearly depict the woman’s distress, and the helplessness of the pilot. Goppe’s edition of this poem contains two lithographs by A. Sedov and three by Goppe. The cover and frontispiece are designed by Goppe and executed in silkscreen and collages.
