Anna Akhmatova


Anna Akhmatova (Russian: А́нна Ахма́това, real name А́нна Андре́евна Горе́нко) (June 23 [O.S. June 11] 1889 — March 5, 1966) was the pen name of Anna Andreevna Gorenko, a Russian poet with a largely credited influence on Russian poetry. Akhmatova's work ranges from short lyric poems to universalized, ingeniously structured cycles, such as Requiem(1935-40), her tragic masterpiece about the Stalinist terror. Her work addresses a variety of themes including time and memory, the fate of creative women, and the difficulties of living and writing in the shadow of Stalinism. Read more on Last.fm.
