Hope Against Hope: A Memoir (Modern Library)

by

Hope Against Hope: A Memoir (Modern Library) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A poignant monument to their love and is also a unique first-hand account of the life of the intelligentsia under Stalin. Mandelstam describes what it was like to get the knock on the door in the middle of the night and to live a life in exile, unable to trust anyone, constantly fearful.

Synopsis:

Hope Against Hope was first published in English in 1970. It is Nadezhda Mandelstam's memoir of her life with Osip, who was first arrested in 1934 and died in Stalin's Great Purge of 1937-38. Hope Against Hope is a vital eyewitness account of Stalin's Soviet Union and one of the greatest testaments to the value of literature and imaginative freedom ever written. But it is also a profound inspiration - a love story that relates the daily struggle to keep both love and art alive in the most desperate circumstances.
