Poems of Akhmatova = Anna Akhmatova, izbrannye stikhi by Anna Andreevna Akhmatova( Book )

15 editions published between 1973 and 1997 in English and held by 1,098 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Gathering the tribes by Carolyn Forché( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The language and images of Carolyn Forché’s poetry are so closely bound to the natural cycles of the seasons, of generations, of the body’s functioning, that it is surprising to realize how many of her poems deal with uprootedness―hasty emigrations from Czechoslovakia and Kiev, the loss of grandparents and other elders, people leaving and being sent away. But this poetry is not a sentimental celebration of the goodness of nature, and harmony with the world is never something assumed. The harmony Forché seeks goes deeper than simple submission to natural processes or identification with an ethnic group, and it must be fought for with a tenuous faith, the balance that must be found between the ugliness, the harshness of her history―both natural and social―and its intense beauty, is what distinguishes Forché’s poetry, gives it is depth and dimension."--Cover
