Abstract

The poet, Anna Akhmatova (1889-1966), had two distinct periods of creative work: 1912-1925, and from 1936 until her death in 1966. Strict censorship, and the fact that her emotive writings did not sit well with the Russian State, meant that much of her work was not readily available until a general thawing in Russia, post Stalin. Akhmatova was a courageous woman, choosing to stay and live in her native Russia, rather than emigrate. She stands as one of the most significant modern Russian poets, and with her poetic sensibilities, and economic restraint, it is easy to see why Charles Brasch had this volume in his library. The English translator is Richard McKane.
