This awesome biography, the 1st ever written concerning the nice Russian poet, Anna Akhmatova (1889-1966), illuminates Akhmatova's dramatic own struggles. From the isolation of the twenty-five years she was once banned from publishing her paintings, and the sorrow of her tragic losses--her first husband accomplished by means of Stalin, her moment lifeless within the paintings camps, and her son imprisoned for fourteen years--to her ultimate years of triumph receiving public acclaim because the country's ultimate lady poet, this compelling, authoritative account strains the connection among her writings and her existence. Haight presents based translations and particular analyses of Akhmatova's most interesting works, together with "Requiem" and "Poem and not using a Hero," revealing the brilliance of this now hugely praised poet.
