Celebrating three Russian literary greats-Alexander Pushkin, Anna Akhmatova, and Andrei Voznesensky-this collection of their writing presents new translations of a combined 44 poems and includes both Russian and English text. Nearly 20 artworks-from colour monoprints to black-and-white collages, illustrations, and photographs-by Pushkin, Voznesensky, Amadeo Modigliani, Nikolai Tyrsa, and Claire Weissman Wilks are also included, opening an artistic dialogue with the poems and the reader.

Alexander Pushkin is, perhaps, the greatest of Russian poets and considered the founder of modern Russian literature. Anna Akhmatova is Russia's singular female poet and perhaps the greatest in Western culture. Andrei Voznesensky was considered one of the most daring writers of the Soviet era, and before his death he was both critically and popularly acclaimed. These three master poets are brought together with masterful translations that engage their many complexities and are a must for personal or academic interests in Russian literature or poetry in general.
