Akhmatova called it “The Proud Flesh”.

Posted 04-12-2010 at 07:14 AM by Helen Agaf (Stars never fall, they travel)
In 1960-es Russian poetess Anna Akhmatova had a special notebook of most personal and cherished poems of hers, known as “The Cherished Notebook”. As a joke, she called it “The Proud Flesh”. Many of those poems were her deep considerations about personal responsibility of a poet for the epoch he/she destined to live in. Only some of them were included into her last book entitled “The Race of Time” and published, as the poetess decided, that the tough censorship was over.

Your Support

Posted 09-23-2009 at 03:43 PM by Alex Pepple
Thank you all, especially those who've responded to the call for support (quoted below from the GT post here.) Still, the response has been lukewarm, hence this follow up in the blogs in the hope that more will see this note and contribute something, no matter how small. Every little bit helps, and little bits from more members especially so.
