Letters, summer 1926 by Rainer Maria Rilke( Book )

4 editions published between 1986 and 2001 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Edited by Yevgeny Pasternak, Yelena Pasternak, and Konstantin M. Azadovsky. The summer of 1926 was a time of trouble and uncertainty for each of the three poets whose correspondence is collected in this moving volume. Marina Tsvetayeva was living in exile in France and struggling to get by. Boris Pasternak was in Moscow, trying to come to terms with the new Bolshevik regime. Rainer Maria Rilke, in Switzerland, was dying. Though hardly known to each other, they began to correspond, exchanging a series of searching letters in which every aspect of life and work is discussed with extraordinary intensity and passion. Letters: Summer 1926 takes the reader into the hearts and minds of three of the twentieth century's greatest poets at a moment of maximum emotional and creative pressure

Autobiography of Maxim Gorky: My childhood. In the world. My universities by Maksim Gorky( Book )

10 editions published between 1913 and 1961 in English and Undetermined and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Childhood is one of the most vivid and candid accounts of a child's life ever written. Althought Gorky's description of the cruelties and barbarities in his grandfather's household cannot fail to disturb the modern reader, he can take heart from what he hears of such worthwhile characters as Gorky's delightful grandmother and from the knowledge that Gorky's exposure let the light into these dark places to everyone's advantage

Fifty Russian winters : an American woman's life in the Soviet Union by Margaret Wettlin( Book )

5 editions published between 1699 and 1994 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1932 Margaret Wettlin left Depression-torn America for the Soviet Union, eager to see for herself if communism was the hope for the future. Planning to remain one year, she fell in love with and married stage director Andrei Efremoff, and stayed on for almost fifty years. This extraordinary memoir is the story of how she and her family - and millions of their fellow citizens - struggled to survive the hardships of famine, repression, war, and terrible purges. Fifty Russian Winters is an incomparable and moving document - the only close-up view we have of Soviet life by an American who spent more than half a lifetime inside Russia and who, as Harrison Salisbury says in his introduction, "kept her heart and mind and eyes open - and remembered."
