Boris Pasternak, whose first true love was music, brings a unique sense of melody to his poetry. I commend Andrey Kneller on achieving just that. Pasternak's first books of verse went unnoticed

Boris Pasternak, whose first true love was music, brings a unique sense of melody to his poetry. Barely a whisper, one almost needs to overhear the subtle song in his words. It is this quality of his poetry that sets him apart from his contemporaries and makes his work moving and unforgettable. Pasternak's first books of verse went unnoticed. With My Sister Life, 1922, and Themes and Variations, 1923, the latter marked by an extreme, though sober style, Pasternak first gained a place as a leading poet among his Russian contemporaries.

Nobel laureate Boris Pasternak was highly regarded in his native Russia .

Nobel laureate Boris Pasternak was highly regarded in his native Russia as one of the country’s greatest post-revolutionary poets. in his power to sustain rich and varied moods which had never been explored before. The 1920s and 1930s were years of transformation for Pasternak.

Art always serves beauty, and beauty is the joy of possessing form, and form is the key to organic life since no living thing can exist without i. -Boris Pasternak, "Dr. Zhivago".

One of the greatest poets of the Silver Age, Boris Pasternak  (February 10, 1890 - May 30, 1960) became known in the west after he was awarded the 1958 Nobel Laureate in Literature and was forced by the Russian authorities to decline the prize. This scandal won him a large audience in the west and his novel, Dr. Zhivago became an instant success. However, contrary to popular belief, Boris Pasternak has never actively rebelled against the Soviet regime. His poetry has always reflected his inner self and was not dictated by the atmosphere of the epoch. In Russia, where the novel, Dr, Zhivago, had been banned until the late 1980's, Boris Pasternak was primarily known for his work as a poet. Boris Pasternak, whose first true love was music, brings a unique sense of melody to his poetry. Barely a whisper, one almost needs to overhear the subtle song in his words. It is this quality of his poetry that sets him apart from his contemporaries and makes his work moving and unforgettable.Nearly all of the poems from Dr. Zhivago (with the exceptions of "Wedding," "Star of Nativity," and "The Miracle," which proved to be too difficult to translate adequately) are included in this dual-language edition, as well as some other poetry written throughout his life. Great emphasis has been placed on retaining the musical quality of the work, without sacrificing the content.

I was inspired to acquaint myself with Boris Pasternak's poetry when I read in Eugenia Ginzburg's memoir of her arrest and imprisonment in one of the Siberian GULAG camps, Journey into the Whirlwind, that she found comfort and relief in his poetry. In fact, because she had a prodigious memory Ginzburg was able to recite poetry for hours at a time allowing herself and her fellow prisoners to temporarily forget the misery of their captivity.

Of the several books of Pasternik's poetry Amazon offered, I chose "February" because it contained a selection of poems written throughout his career. Unfortunately, the publication date of each poem is not identified, only the date it was written. According to the biographical sketch at the end of the book, Pasternak maintained a strictly apolitical position towards the Soviet regime, but during Stalin's rule, at considerable risk to himself he defended the independence of the artist. In keeping with his apolitical attitude, the subjects of these poems mostly concern private life, i.e. humanity, the difficult relations between man and woman, and the passing of the seasons. There are also poems about New Testament people and events. There is one poem, dated 1956, which describes the monotony and narrow-mindedness of the Soviet Union's powers-that-be.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Russian, especially Soviet, literature and to poetry lovers generally.

I enjoyed reading the poems included in this compilation of Boris Pasternak's work encompassing many years of his writing career. It is a shame that Pasternak's own country forbid the publication of these works.

There are beauty in these words. I would believe it to be challenge to translate poetry and maintain the prose and beauty. I commend Andrey Kneller on achieving just that.

Pasternak's poetry strikes home. Although best known in the West for his novel, I plan to order more of his poetry.

Pasternak is a poet , a painter and a musician of the most dreary nature.
love, pain and hurt all shine through with apathy and disgust.
a must for any lovers of russian literature.
Madi
Decent, fairly literal translations. Not a lot of depth in the translations, but Pasternak's meaning does come through.
Мох
I read all the poems by Pasternak. He can be a difficult poet but once you are through reading one of his poems, you are a changed man.
I've read several of Mr. Keller's translations and have no doubt that they are superb. However, I found myself less drawn e this collection than those of Anna Akhmatova and Marina Tsvetaeva.
