Anna Andreevna Akhmatova (1889-1966)
“Anna Andreevna Akhmatova used poetry to give voice to the struggles and deepest yearnings of the Russian people, for whom she remains the greatest of literary heroines. She has lately come to symbolize for the world even beyond Russia the power of art to survive and transcend the terrors of our century.”

Judith Hemschemeyer, A Stranger to Heaven and Earth
