Review:

"A genius of Russian poetry" ( Sunday Times)

"Once, when young, she had written the lines which lovers quoted to one another. Later she provided words which thousands of men and women repeated under their breath, as they suffered, feared and waited." ( Observer)

"The greatest Russian poetess of the twentieth century" (Joseph Brodsky)

"Her fortitude and independence, the breadth of her compassion and the clarity of her realistic vision erased the line between herself and others; her intensely personal lyrics became the void of her nation's tragedy" ( New York Times Book Review)

"The extraordinary misery of her life and the extraordinary merits of her poems make Anna Akhmatova one of the great literary figures of modern times" ( Economist)

Book Description:

A new edition of the selected poems of Russia's greatest twentieth-century poet, published to celebrate her 120th anniversary.
