DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The golden skies, the translucent twilight, the white nights, all hold the promise of youth, of love, of eternal renewal. The war has not yet touched this city of fallen grandeur, or the lives of two sisters, Tatiana and Dasha Metanova, who share a single room in a cramped apartment with their brother and parents. Their world is turned upside down when Hitler's armies attack Russia and begin their unstoppable blitz to Leningrad. Yet there is light in the darkness. Tatiana meets Alexander, a brave young officer in the Red Army. Strong and self-confident, yet guarding a mysterious and troubled past, he is drawn to Tatiana—and she to him. Starvation, desperation, and fear soon grip their city during the terrible winter of the merciless German siege. Tatiana and Alexander's impossible love threatens to tear the Metanova family apart and expose the dangerous secret Alexander so carefully protects—a secret as devastating as the war itself—as the lovers are swept up in the brutal tides that will change the world and their lives forever.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Anna Akhmatova composed Requiem largely before 1940, but it was not published until the mid 1960s - after her death. It is now known to be one of her best works. Requiem is a cycle comprised of fifteen poems, the entireties of which are introduced by a personal reflection written in prose. Alexander Pushkin wrote his lyric ballad The Bronze Horseman in 1833 about the tremendous flood of 1824 in St. Petersburg and the involvement of the bronze equestrian statue of Peter the Great. Everything that the protagonist, Evgeny, cares for is destroyed, and he blames the Tsar for his losses. Although the subject matter of The Bronze Horseman is quite different from that of Requiem, there are several overlying commonalities in theme. Akhmatova herself and Pushkin's Evgeny have a nearly parallel journey throughout their respective tales. There are elements of grief related insanity in both, and a small glimmer of hope towards the end. Both works have many layers of meaning. This work ends with a reflection on the life of Anna Politkovskaya. Politkovskaya serves as a link between Pushkin and Akhmatova's works and the world of today. The themes present in The Bronze Horseman and Requiem are persistent and ever-present. Politkovskaya's life and work continues what Pushkin and Akhmatova started, and makes their stories more accessible and understandable.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The Bronze Horseman is a narrative poem written by Alexander Pushkin in 1833 about the equestrian statue of Peter the Great in Saint Petersburg and the great flood of 1824. While the poem was written in 1833, it was not published, in its entirety, until after his death as his work was under censorship due to the political nature of his other writings. Widely considered to be Pushkin's most successful narrative poem, "The Bronze Horseman" has had a lasting impact on Russian literature. It is considered one of the most influential works in Russian literature, and is one of the reasons Pushkin is often called the "founder of modern Russian literature."
