A review by thewordsdevourer
Anna Akhmatova by D.M. Thomas, Anna Akhmatova

reflective sad slow-paced


sadly, this volume is a disappointing read for me. id stumbled upon some akhmatova poems in the past and liked them enough to check this one out, but perhaps this just isnt for me. some of the poems are visceral and resonate on a very deep level, but the craft and msg of most others elude me. ofc akhmatova's merit isnt diminished by my personal inability to construe her works by any means, but this volume simply isnt for me, i think.
