This reissued and revised printing features a new biographical essay as well as expanded notes to the poems, both by Roberta Reeder, project editor and author of Anna Akhmatova: Poet and Prophet (St. Martin's Press, 1994). Encyclopedic in scope, with more than 800 poems, 100 photographs, a historical chronology, index of first lines, and bibliography. The Complete Poems will be the definitive English language collection of Akhmatova for many years to come.

Anna Akhmatova is one of the best poets I have ever read. That being said, if you order this book, you will not be receiving the bilingual, two volume edition that Barnes and Noble advertises it as. You will receive the unilingual (English only) updated version in only one volume. I was disappointed (not in the poet...in B & N ) because I have looked everywhere for the two-volume edition with the Russian beside the English, and have been unable to find it. If anyone knows of a place to locate this version, please contact me.
