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’.
