Selected Poetry of Boris Pasternak

release date: Oct 07, 2022
Selected Poetry of Boris Pasternak
Boris Pasternak was a Nobel Prize and gret modern russian poet and writer. Pasternak''s first book of poems, My Sister, Life (1917), is one of the most influential collections ever published in the Russian language. When it finally was published in 1921, the book revolutionised Russian poetry. It made Pasternak the model for younger poets, and decisively changed the poetry of Osip Mandelshtam, Marina Tsvetayeva and others. He continued to change his poetry, simplifying his style and language through the years, as expressed in his next book, Early Trains (1943). Pasternak''s post-Zhivago poetry probes the universal questions of love, immortality, and reconciliation with God. Boris Pasternak wrote his last complete book, When the Weather Clears, in 1959. Pasternak was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1958, an event which both humiliated and enraged the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, which forced him to decline the prize, though his descendants were later to accept it in his name in 1988.

The Adolescence of Zhenya Luvers

The Adolescence of Zhenya Luvers
An enthralling novelette by Boris Pasternak, the author of Dr. Zhivago, The Adolescence of Zhenya Luvers explores how a thirteen-year-old girl ceases to be a child and becomes a woman in Russia just before the Communist Revolution. The story examines the world through the reminiscences of a young girl and explores such themes as nature and how we are able to shape the world around us by how we perceive it. The novelette gives readers a prime example of Pasternak’s signature style and use of poetics, imagery, and lyricism in prose. The Adolescence of Zhenya Luvers is one of Pasternak’s very first stories, and it originally appeared in a collection by the same name, published in 1925.

Doctor Zhivago
First published in Italy in 1957 amid international controversy, Doctor Zhivago is the story of the life and loves of a poet/physician during the turmoil of the Russian Revolution. Taking his family from Moscow to what he hopes will be shelter in the Ural Mountains, Zhivago finds himself instead embroiled in the battle between the Whites and the Reds. Set against this backdrop of cruelty and strife is Zhivago''s love for the tender and beautiful Lara, the very embodiment of the pain and chaos of those cataclysmic times. Pevear and Volokhonsky masterfully restore the spirit of Pasternak''s original—his style, rhythms, voicings, and tone—in this beautiful translation of a classic of world literature.
