9780099583387: Notes from the Blockade

From her experience as a survivor of the 900-day siege of Leningrad, Lidiya Ginzburg has created a remarkable hero in whom she distills the experience of life under siege. Though she depicts the harrowing conditions, the reader takes away an  impression of the dignity, vitality, and intellectual resilience of the thinking mind as it makes sense of extreme experience. This classic work of documentary fiction, reminiscent of Primo Levi and Albert Camus, will be the first introduction of a major 20th-century Russian writer to many English-language readers.

About the Author:

Lidiya Ginzburg (1902-1990) was often at odds with the Soviet literary establishment and much of her writing had to be confined to the "desk drawer." Eventually in 1960s and 1970s she was able to publish her literary criticism and theory, but it was not until 1984 that she published Blockade Diary in the journal Neva. Alexander Kushner is a Pushkin Prize-winning poet.

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The 900-day siege of Leningrad (1941-44) was one of the turning points of the Second World War. It slowed down the German advance into Russia and became a national symbol of survival and resistance. An estimated one million civilians died, most of them from cold and starvation. Lydia Ginzburg, a respected literary scholar (who meanwhile wrote prose for the desk drawer through seven decades of Soviet rule), survived. Using her own using notes and sketches she wrote during the siege, along with conversations and impressions collected over the years, she distilled the collective experience of life under siege. Through painful depiction of the harrowing conditions of that period, Ginzburg created a paean to the dignity, vitality and resilience of the human spirit. This original translation by Alan Myers has been revised and annotated by Emily van Buskirk. This edition includes A Story of Pity and Cruelty , a recently discovered documentary narrative translated into English for the first time by Angela Livingstone.
