Poetry. Book + CD. Translation. Read from the Russian by Ilya Kaminksy and Jean Valentine. Via what Ilya Kaminsky and Jean Valentine call "readings"—not translations—of fragments of Marina Tsvetaeva's poems and prose, Tsvetaeva's lyrical genius is made accessible and poignant to a new generation of readers. By juxtaposing fragments of her poems with short pieces of prose, we begin to know her as poet, friend, enemy, woman, lover, and revolutionary. Includes CD with readings of some of the pieces in Russian.
