"No extra passionate voice ever sounded in Russian poetry of the twentieth century," Joseph Brodsky writes of Marina Tsvetaeva. And but Western readers are just now commencing to observe what Tsvetaeva’s Russian viewers has already well-known, "that she was once one of many significant poetic voices of the century" (Tomas Venclova, The New Republic).
Born to a relations of Russian intelligentsia in 1892 and coming of age within the crucible of revolution and battle, Tsvetaeva has been obvious as a sufferer of her politicized time, her lifestyles and her paintings marked via exile, overlook, and persecution. This publication is the 1st to teach us the poet as she chanced on her lifestyles via paintings, formed as a lot by means of internal demons as via the political forces and vicious realities of her day. With striking mental and literary subtlety, Lily Feiler lines those demons in the course of the tragic drama of Tsvetaeva’s existence and poetry. Hers is a narrative filled with contradictions, resisting social and literary conventions yet enmeshed within the politics and poetry of her time. Feiler depicts the poet in her complicated relation to her contemporaries—Pasternak, Rilke, Mayakovsky, Mandelstam, and Akhmatova. She exhibits us a lady embodying the values of nineteenth-century romanticism, but radical in her poetry, supremely self sufficient in her paintings, yet determined for appreciation and love, concurrently mom and baby in her complex sexual relationships with males and women.
From prerevolutionary Russia to crimson Moscow, from pre-World battle II Berlin, Prague, and Paris to the Soviet Union less than Stalin, Feiler follows the tortuous drama of Tsvetaeva’s existence and paintings to its final tragic act, exposing at every one flip the passions that molded a few of this century’s strongest poetry.
