Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Andrei Navrozov’s versions are among the best as far as outright poetic quality is concerned . . . These renditions of such famous poems succeed in conveying an impression close to that of the originals."  —World Literature Today

Navrozov won high praise for his 1990 translation of Pasternak's poems, which in this collection concentrate on nature. Good stuff. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

Boris Pasternak famously refused the Nobel Prize, making himself a household name in the West. The award led to such pressure from the government that he was forced to decline the award, which led to his expulsion from the Writer’s Union. Andrei Navrozov is an acclaimed writer, translator, and poet. He has recently completed a cultural and political portrait of contemporary Italy, Italian Carousel: Scenes of Internal Exile.
