Poems of Anna Andreevna Akhmatova
by Anna Andreevna Akhmatova and Joesph Brodsky and Lyn Coffin




Overview -
Ever since her death in 1966 Anna Akhmatova has been recognized as the greatest modern Russian poet. A rich and representative selection of Akhmatova's work--from her poignant, deeply personal love poems to her haunting laments for the martyrs of the Stalinist purges--has been newly translated by the American poet Lyn Coffin. In her finely crafted translations Coffin has been uniquely successful in reproducing the directness and striking effects characteristic of Akhmatova's poetry, and she is the first to remain true to Akhmatova's rhyme and cadence. The poems are prefaced by a thoughtful introduction by the poet Joseph Brodsky, a friend of Akhmatova in her later years.
