A film about Anna Akhmatova ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in Russian and held by 16 libraries worldwide
By the time Anna Akhmatova was twenty-five, fate had granted her every conceivable gift: poetic talent, strength of character, beauty, and fame amidst a brilliant generation. She was then inundated with the tragedies of her century: the arrests and executions of her loved ones, starvation, hardships, wars and revolutions, the Soviet regime's destruction of the culture itself and almost everyone who was part of it, persecution and civic death, isolation, betrayal. Yet Akhmatova emerged victorious, armed with mere conscience and words of poetry that were for many years too dangerous even to commit to paper, surviving only as memorized by a few close friends.
