About the Author

Marina Tsvetaeva (1892-1941) was one of the four great Russian poets of the 20th century, along with Akhmatova, Pasternak and Mandelstam. The first two survived the terror, but Mandelstam died in a camp and Tsvetayeva was driven to hang herself in 1941. Bloodaxe published David McDuff's translation of her "Selected Poems" in 1987.

Reviews

"For me, there are no essays on poetry as unique, as profound, as passionate, as inspiring as these. "Art, a series of answers to which there are no questions," Tsvetaeva brilliantly asserts, and then goes on to ask questions we didn't know existed until she offered them to us, and answers to some of poetry's most enduring mysteries." - C.K. Williams
