Summary

Intensely emotional and honest, this collection of searing poems about love, loss, jealousy, and fear, explores the literary and social landscape of post revolutionary Russia. Sharply addressing the conflicts between the life of a poet and that of a mother and wife, this enlarged volume, masterfully translated, includes five major poem sequences, one of which was written in 1915 for the poet's lover Sofia Parnok and another in response to poet Rainer Maria Rilke's death. Invoking Stalinist Russia as an underlying theme, this compilation also covers politics and history.

Author Biography

Marina Tsvetaeva is considered one of Russia's most important postrevolutionary poets. She is the author of The Demesne of the Swans, Evening Album, and The Rat-Catcher. Elaine Feinstein is the author of many novels, radio plays, television dramas, and five biographies, including Anna of all the Russias, A Captive Lion: The Life of Marina Tsvetaeva, and Pushkin. She was also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and the recipient of a Cholmondeley Award for Poetry.
