Anna Akhmatova *

a.k.a. Anna Andreyevna Gorenko

Author Code: RAAG

Born: Jun. 23, 1889 - Odessa, Ukraine

Died: Mar. 5, 1966 - Domodedova, Russia

Educated at Kiev University and the University of St. Petersburg, Akhmatova began writing poetry at an early age and had been published by the age of 17. She married the poet Nikolay Gumilev in 1903. In 1910, she helped to found the Guild of Poets. Her first book of verse, Evening, was published by the Guild in 1912. She became close friends with Boris Pasternak, who proposed to her many times. She divorced Gumilev in 1918, who was subsequently executed by the Soviet secret police. Her previous relationship with him had a detrimental effect on her ability to be published. During the 1920s, she spent much of her time on translating the works of Hugo, Tagore and Leopardi. Finally, in 1939, Stalin approved a volume of her poetry. Nevertheless, by 1946, the Central Committee of CPSU, on Stalin's orders, began to investigate her and others. Her son was arrested in 1949 and sentenced to 10 years in the Gulag. She was readmitted to the Union of Writers in 1951. Akhmatova is undoubtedly the most famous of Russian 20th century female poets. She suffered a heart attack after visiting Oxford. She was moved to a sanatorium in Moscow early in 1966, but died of heart failure shortly thereafter. Her works include Rosary (1914), White Flock (1917), From Six Books (1940), Selections of Poetry (1943), Poems (1958) and The Flight of Time - Collected Works (1965).
