MY HERO recommends this book to adult readers.
This book is a major critical biography of the poet Maria Tsvetaeva by one of the foremost authorities on her work. it draws on a profusion of recent documentation and research, (some of it hitherto unpublished) and encompasses the whole course of her life. Professor Karlinsky is careful to supply the reader with the necessary context for understanding the work by setting out the historical, political, and literary background against which Tsvetaeva''s life and literary development evolved. A particular feature of the book is a discussion of Tsvetaeva''s relationships with her literary contemporaries, especially Mandelstam, Rilke, Akhmatova, Pasternak, and Mayakovsky.
