I have been reading nineteenth and occasionally twentieth century Russian prose literature for the whole of my adult life. Starting with Turgenev, then Tolstoy, Dostoevsky and the rest. However, as Robert Chandler tells us in the introduction to this wonderful book, poetry not prose is what matters most to Russians. Until reading this book I had read some verse of Pushkin's but little else really. I now know what I have been missing. Even in translation the examples of Russian poetry chosen for this book are so impressive that encountering them was, for me, a genuine revelation. Like the great prose writers, Russian poets tend towards the big questions of life, the universe and everything. There are too many great lines I could quote but I'll settle for one little gem of perception that particularly appealed to me. It comes from 'Avvakum in Pustozyorsk' by Varlam Shalamov (1907-82):
This is a great survey of Russian poetry, covering four centuries. It really does the subject justice. As a Kindle book it is exceptional value for money. It's not one of those cheap, knock-it-up sort of books where they just throw a whole lot of material together, without any additional bits like introductions, etc., it's a proper book... on Kindle. They say a lot of people don't read prefaces and introductions but I often find them invaluable to refer to, just to clarify things sometimes and in Russian books, of whatever sort, they are indispensable.
Good selection, especially the more modern poets. Not read all of it, but translations seem very good. It's a pity that (unlike the ancient "Penguin Book of Russian Verse"), and its successor, (from Indiana University Press) "The Heritage of Russian Verse") the Russian originals are not included. i know that this would have made a very fat book, but I chose the Kindle version to save space. As a lover of Russian poetry, I used to run round the park reciting many of these poems (quietly!), and was just a bit disappointed in this respect; hence only 4 stars, not 5. For poetry lovers who don't speak Russian, however, I'd thoroughly recommend this book.
This comprehensive collection of Russian Poetry is lovely to own. It is so good to go to a particular poet and read about him/her and read some of the poems. It is a book you can keep forever on your kindle and enjoy whenever the mood seizes you. I thoroughly recommend it.
