About the Author

Marina Ivanovna Tsvetaeva, 1892-1941 Marina Ivanovna Tsvetaeva was born on October 8, 1892 in Moscow. Her first collection appeared in 1910, and she ranks among the major twentieth-century Russian poets. Her numerous lyrics and long poems are distinguished by great vigor and passion and an näytä lisää astonishing technical mastery. Her language and rhythms are highly innovative. In subject, her poetry varies greatly, often diary-like but also intensely concerned with the fate of her generation, of Russia, and of Europe. Tsvetaeva did not shy away from controversial topics, often opposing received dogma, be it Soviet or Russian emigre. She frequently subsumed herself in other characters, merging dramatic and lyrical elements. Particularly striking are her long poems Poem of the Mountain, Poem of the End, and Ratcatcher and her later collections Craft (1923) and After Russia (1928). After emigrating from the Soviet Union, Tsvetaeva also seriously turned to prose. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

Lyhyt elämäkerta
Marina Ivanovna Tsvetaeva was born in Moscow, Russia, a daughter of Ivan Vladimirovich Tsvetaev, a professor of Fine Art at the University of Moscow, and his second wife Maria Alexandrovna, a concert pianist. Anastasia Tsvetaevna was her younger sister. The family traveled abroad and Marina attended schools in Switzerland and Germany, and studied history and literature at the Sorbonne. In 1910, she self-published her first collection of poems. In 1912, she married Sergei Efron, also a poet and a Russian military officer, with whom she would have three children. Her second collection of verses, Magic Lantern, also appeared in 1912. Between 1917 and 1922, she wrote a cycle of six plays in prose and verse. In 1919, in the aftermath of the Russian Revolution, in an attempt to save her two daughters from starvation, Marina placed them in a state orphanage, but Irina died there of malnutrition. Marina and her daughter Ariadna then left Russia in 1922 to join Efron in Berlin. They lived in Paris and Prague and had a son, Gregori. The family returned to Moscow in 1939. Efron and Ariadna were arrested on charges of espionage in 1941. He was executed, and Ariadna was sent to a forced labor camp. Marina Tsvetaeva committed suicide that year at age 48. Much of her work was re-published posthumously in the Soviet Union after 1961, and brought her international recognition as a major poet.



A poeta rememora á súa nai a través da súa obsesión pola aprendizaxe da música para ás súas fillas. Despertar da poeta Marina que comprende que o seu non é o piano, senón a escrita de poesía. "Y así, durante toda mi vida, para poder comprender la cosa más simple, siempre he tenido que sumergirla en los versos, y verla desde ahí"

Tsvetaeva is fascinating, the translation if readable and has a wonderful rhythm, but I have very low tolerance for, as the blub itself puts it, a lyrical diary that pays hommage to other poets. There's just too many poems in which Tsvetaeva talks about whom she wants to sleep with, or whom she's sleeping with, or subtle variations on that wanting to sleep with stuff. And for whatever reason, I have a very hard time reading 'tribute to...' poems.

Given these facts--which are about me, not the book--this is a pretty solid volume. When Marina's imagining herself as an aged grandmother hitting on the young men, it's fun. The poems to Alya are very moving. Some of the narratives are masterpieces of compression. She's funny, she's smart, and the context for the volume makes it worth a look: Tsetaeva wrote these poems during the chaotic years after the revolution, while her husband was away fighting the Bolsheviks.… (lisätietoja)
