This is a wonderful translation of a brilliant Russian poetess. All of the music of Akhmatova's words comes through -- all of her meter and rhyme, and even her characteristic adoption of the characters she creates. She writes of fleeting moments, split instances, and details them so beautifully that it's impossible not to see the pictures she paints.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
