Description

This selection of poems by major Russian poet Tsvetaeva includes some of her earliest offerings, drawn from her 1910 collection EVENING ALBUM, written when she was 18, through compositions of the Stalinist era in which she was ostracized. In her innovative verse, the bittersweet celebration of Old Russia, as well as the tragedy of living abroad as an emigrant during the upheavals of her homeland, are apparent. These English translations seek to convey her passionate longing.
