Anna Akhmatova (1889–1966) is one of 20th-century Russia’s greatest poets, whose work is a powerful response to the repression and tragedy of the Stalin era. This collection of her letters, essays, an unfinished memoir, diatribes against the government and rousing wartime broadcasts forms the closest thing to a self-portrait the elusive writer allowed herself. Among these tantalizing fragments are vivid memories of friends and contemporaries such as Blok, Mandelstam, Modigliani, Pasternak and Tsvetaeva.
