Reviews

"D.M. Thomas is a poet in his own right, and ... a sensitive translator of [Akhmatova]. Thomas refers to the 'rich mysterious fluid life' that her poetry has.... From his strong yet cautious rhythms, his solid musical phrasing, one [can] intuit the dark elegance of the original."--Yorkshire Post
"These are among the best, the most authoritative, of ... translations from the Russian, and are from one of the most powerful of the twentieth century Russian poets."--Financial Times
"Akhmatova's example reminds us that while it is true that the writer cannot change the world alone, the world cannot change itself without her."
--San Francisco Jung Institute Library Journal
"Anna Akmatova is one of the best-known Soviet poets."
--Feminist Bookstore News
