THE PUBLICATION OF A BOOK

(From the Cycle "Secrets of the Craft")

That day is always unusual.

Concealing boredom, bitterness and malice,

The poet is a friendly host,

The reader-an appreciative guest.

One leads the guests into a mansion,

Another-under the pitched roof of a hut,

A third-directly into a night of languor,

For my readers-the rack is good enough.

Why, what sort are they and from where,

And along this road to nowhere,

What lures them-what miracle,

What black star?

But to all of them it's unquestionably clear

What kind of reward to expect,

That it is dangerous to stay here,

That this is not the Garden of Eden.

But just imagine! They keep surging in,

Inevitabl LANGUAGE: rus

Synopsis:

Poetry. Translated from Russian by Judith Hemschemeyer. This book contains more than one hundred poems from The Complete Poems of Anna Akmatova, which was named of the best books of 1990 by the New York Times. Akhmatova first achieved fame as an icon of pre-Revolutionary literary society. In the post revolution era she became the unofficial spokesperson for her fellow countrymen who suffered through Stalinism. This book features poems both originally written in Russian and English and represents the full span of the poet's career. Also included is a translator's introduction and a preface to Akhmatova's life by Roberta Reeder and notes from Hemschemeyer's definitive translation.
