Four of Us : Pasternak, Akhmatova, Mandelstam, Tsvetaeva

Four of Us : Pasternak, Akhmatova, Mandelstam, Tsvetaeva

Description

.."..The fact of the matter is that everything that happens in culture ultimately comes down to this, to the four famous temperaments: melancholic, sanguine, phlegmatic, and choleric. That's what I think. It seems to me that our Big Four can also be divided by according to these temperaments, inasmuch as all of them are actually very distinctly represented in the group. Tsvetaeva is unquestionably the choleric author. Pasternak is sanguine. Mandelstam is melancholic. And Akhmatova is phlegmatic. Together they cover the whole poetic universe." -Joseph Brodsky Included in this dual-language book is a selection of 10 poems from each poet translated into English by Andrey Kneller.
