Strong Words free pdf Celebrating three Russian literary greats--Alexander Pushkin, Anna Akhmatova, and Andrei Voznesenski--this collection of their writing presents new translations of a combined 34 poems and includes both Russian and English text. A handful of masterful illustrations are also included, opening an artistic dialogue with the poems and the reader. Similar to many other writers and artists throughout history, Akhmatova was influenced and inspired by Pushkin, and her canon of work has also endured and been acclaimed for its artistic integrity. Voznesenski was a poet and writer who had been referred to by Robert Lowell as "one of the greatest living poets in any language." These three master poets are brought together with translations that engage their many complexities. Six poems are presented from Pushkin, 22 from Akhmatova, and six from Voznesenski.
