A Russian Psyche: The Poetic Mind of Marina Tsvetaeva


Up to 2 WeeksUsually despatched within 2 weeks


Russian poet Marina Tsvetaeva's powerful poetic voice and her tragic life have often prompted literary commentators to treat her as either a martyr or a monster. Born in Russia in 1892, she emigrated to Europe in 1922, returned at the height of the Stalinist Terror, and committed suicide in 1941. This work focuses on her poetry, rediscovering her as a serious thinker with a coherent artistic and philosophical vision.
