    schema:description "In her beautifully written memoir, the poet Olga Berggolts weaves together episodes from the Russian Revolution and Civil War, which she experienced as a child, the World War II siege of Leningrad, and the post-Stalin Thaw. During the siege, Berggolts became the beloved voice of Radio Leningrad, broadcasting some of her most acclaimed poetry - at once deeply personal and full of faith in the inevitable Soviet victory. After Stalin's death, Berggolts was among the most outspoken critics of Stalinist constraints on literature. She wrote Daytime Stars in the spirit of Thaw-era opposition to the impersonality of Socialist Realism, celebrating the ideals of the Revolution and the heroism of the Soviet people while simultaneously registering doubt and sometimes despair. This translation of Daytime Stars offers a compelling introduction to a unique work of Soviet autobiography and to an author well known in the Soviet Union whose work has rarely been translated into English."@en ;
