Summary Anna Akhmatova died in 1966, acclaimed as Russia's greatest woman poet. Her brilliant, intense work, of which this volume is a careful selection, can be read in sequence as a powerful chronicle of her country in the twentieth century. Before 1918 she wrote avant-garde verse, was star of the St. Petersburg literary circle and a friend of Boris Pasternak, Osip Mandelstam and Alexander Blok. She lived through the Revolution and the two world wars, endured the siege of Leningrad, and during Stalin's great purge of the thirties suffered official contempt and censorship and the loss by death or exile of her loved ones. The stark, searing poems from the time of the Terror onward express all the despair, rage and anguish of the Russian intellectuals of that era. This volume is enhanced by essays on her life and work by the translators.--From publisher description.
