The Russian poet Marina Tsevetayeva was born in Moscow in 1892. A prodigy who began writing at six, she published her first book of poems in 1910 it caused a favourable stir. She travelled, studied at the Sorbonne, and reacted strongly against the revolution. Her husband fought throughout the Russian civil war for the whites. In 1922 she was allowed to go abroad. At first she was lionized among Russian emigres, but her intense individuality, which showed itself in her poetry as well as her personality, made her no more at home in reactionary circles than in the Soviet Union. In 1939 she returned home. During the German invasion she was evacuated to the remote town of Yelabuga, where, having tragically lost members of her immediate family, she hanged herself in 1941.
