Golosa poetov. Stikhi zarubezhnykh poetov v perevode Anny Akhmatovoi [Poets’ voices. Verses of foreign poets translated by Anna Akhmatova].
First edition: translations by Akhmatova of a selection of pieces by Polish, Czech, Slovak, Bulgarian, Yugoslavian, Norwegian, and Indian poets. She published six volumes of translations during her lifetime but, despite her success, she complained that for a poet translating was ‘comparable to devouring one’s own brains’.

Included here is his masterpiece the ‘Ramelet Moundi’, comprising odes, stanzas in honour of Henry IV, sonnets, quatrains, carnivalesque prose, drinking songs, and Christmas carols. The Obros ends with a substantial dictionary – stretching to over 100 pages – of the Toulouse dialect, ‘contenant principalement les mots les plus éloignés du François, avec leur explication’.
