From the Back Cover: Here is a monumental achievement in verse-the most representative work of 400 modern Jewish poets from over 40 nations, ranging from the U.S. and Canada to Israel and Eastern Europe to surprising corners of the world like Cuba, Wales, and Sri Lanka. The poems are expertly translated from more than 20 languages, such as Hebrew, Yiddish, French, German, and Russian, as well as authentically Jewish hybrid languages like Judeo-Romanesque and Judezmo.

My half century : selected prose by Anna Andreevna Akhmatova( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anna Akhmatova lived in a world suffused with tragedy: She faced the execution of her poet husband, the imprisonment and exile of her son, the deaths of many friends in labor camps, and personal censorship and illness. However, throughout her life she remained committed to being a witness for the times with her daring poetry and prose. This collection includes Akhmatova's letters, essays on Pushkin, diatribes against the Stalinist establishment, rousing wartime broadcasts, and encounters with fellow poets. Here, through her deceptively simple style, the elusive writer conveys the closest thing to a self-portrait she ever allowed herself."--Publisher description

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

". .1 have no love for life as such; for me it begins to have significance, i.e., to acquire meaning and weight, only when it is transformed, i.e., in art. If I were taken beyond the seaƯ into paradise-and forbidden to write, I would refuse the sea and paradise. I don't need life as a thing in itself." This, written by Tsvetayeva in a letter to her Czech friend, Teskova, in 1925, could stand as an inscription to her life. Marina Tsvetayeva was born in Moscow on September 26, 1892. Her fathel̃ a well-known art historian and philoloƯ gist, founded the Moscow Museum of the Fine Arts, now known as the Pushkin Museum; her mother, a pianist, died young, in 1906. Marina began writing poetry at the age of six. Her first book, Evening Album, contained poems she had writƯ ten before she turned seventeen, and enjoyed reviews by the poet, painter, and mentor of young writers, Max Voloshin, the poet Gumilyov, and the Symbolist critic and poet, Valerii Bryusov. Voloshin and Gumilyov welcomed the seventeenƯ year-old poet as their equal; Bryusov was more critical of her, though he too, in his own belligerent way, acknowledged her talent
