Along with Boris Pasternak, Vladimir Maïakovski (his favorite writers), Anna Akhmatova and Ossip Mandelstam, Marina Tvetaeva (1892-1941) is considered to be one of the greatest Russian poets of the 20th century.
Born in 1892 in Moscow in a middle-class and intellectual family – her father was the first director of the museum "Beaux-Arts", named nowadays museum Pushkin – Marina Tvetaeva began publishing academic poems at a very young age. The "October Revolution" arises and Tsvetaeva was taken into the revolutionary conflict after the crushing defeat of the "White Army" where her husband served as an officer.
The painful banishment starts in 1922. First in Prague, then in Paris where she will stay until 1939 before coming back in USSR. War is spreading; her husband and her daughter are arrested and jailed. Marina and its son are evacuated in Tatarstan Republic. Really impacted by all these dramas, she is committing suicide in 1941.
Even the most devastating events of the History can't sweep impetuous talents.
Being dashed by Stalinist terror, Marina Tsvetaeva is today resurrecting and beaming. This «Soul Dancer», as she claimed to be named, crosses, with her dazzling poetry, the tragedy of her life's path, of an indestructible integrity, keeping all its liberty load today.
