Nice explanation of her child's difficult character

When someone among her close friends noticed, that her son was difficult to deal with, Akhmatova promptly replied: “Don’t forget, he hasn’t been subscribed to any library since his nine years old as a son of a public enemy executed by shooting.”

Akhmatova called it “The Proud Flesh”.

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.
