Reviews

"The importance of Akhmatova's works in the Russian poetic tradition can scarcely be exaggerated. These works also hold a place of honor in the history of artistic engagement of moral responsibility."--Olga P. Hasty, Princeton University


"Akhmatova is fortunate indeed to have won the attention of such a gifted translator and scholar. Anderson has succeeded in producing quite literally the best English-language translations of Akhmatova's long poems."--Susan Amert, University of Delaware
