Russian poet and translator


Ilya Valerievich Kormiltsev (1959—2007) was a Russian poet, a translator from English, Italian, Polish and French, a music and literary critic, the chief editor of the publishing house “Ultra. Kultura”. He wrote most of the lyrics for the rock band Nautilus Pompilius. Ilya Kormiltsev was born on September 26, 1959 in Sverdlovsk (now Yekaterinburg). In the 1990s he started working as a translator, since the poet had a mastery in several European languages. After breaking up of Nautilus Pompilius in 1997 he founded an electronic music project Chuzhie (The Strangers), yet his major field of activity was not music but literary translations. In 2003 Ilya Kormiltsev became the head of the newly open publishing house “Ultra. Kultura” (suspended its work in 2007) that was specializing on issuing radical texts. On February 4, 2007 Ilya Kormiltsev died of vertebral cancer in London. Laid down to rest in Troyekurovskoe Cemetery in Moscow.
