Witness to the international and domestic chaos of the first half of the twentieth century, Anna Akhmatova (1888-1966) chronicled Russia's troubled times in poems of sharp beauty and intensity.

Here is the essence of Akhmatova - a landmark selection and translation, including excerpts from "Poem with a Hero."
