A. Achmatova - Werken [De Russische Bibliotheek] - 2007
Bindings, Literature, Poetry - Quantity: 1 - Dust jacket - Book

Unfindable classic, published in the unsurpassed
‘Russische Bibliotheek’ series by G.A. van Oorschot,
in a condition as it should be:
beautifully printed on India paper, cloth-bound with dust jacket and the
original belly band, in near mint condition.

After the bilingual editions of poems by Vladimir Mayakovsky and Marina Tsvetaeva, the Russische Bibliotheek of Van Oorschot now also includes the poetic work of Anna Akhmatova (1889-1966). Achmatova is one of Russia's greatest poets, popular since her first collections of love lyricism, loved mainly for her ability to express the horrors of the Stalin era and the Second World War. The edition features a wide selection from all of Akhmatova's collections, as well as the longer poems, such as the poignant “Requiem” and “Poem Without a Hero”. This makes it even more representative than the almost simultaneously published “Sneeuwstorm. Noodlot. Lied”, in which Hans Boland collected his Akhmatova translations. The translations by the experienced duo Marja Wiebes and Margriet Berg certainly measure up to Boland's, and are often closer to the original. Very special poetry in a beautiful edition. Excellently translated poetry by the great Russian poet Anna Akhmatova. Beautiful, bilingual acquisition in the Russische Bibliotheek
