Synopsis: Shadow of a Soul marks the premier appearance of Russian poet Bella Dizhur in English. It is also the first complete collection of her poetry in any language. Included, in facing page translations, are poems, (written over a period of 50 years before the book was published in 1990) some of which brought her sharp criticism in the Soviet Union: she was denounced for being the Akhmatova of her time and criticized for an aesthetic pessimism.Included for the first time is the entire poem Janusz Korczak, which won Dizhur the title of Korczak Laureate from the West German Korczak Committee. It is a moving account of his life, and ultimate death when he chose to accompany his children to the gas chambers of Treblinka during World War II.

From the Back Cover: To Alice Thomas Ellis, the North Wales of her childhood is still home. This idiosyncratic account of her life there effortlessly conjures up the spirit of the land; its saints, princes and ghosts, its fierce godliness and gleeful lack of scruples. Haunting legends, hilarious anecdotes, and memories - fractured by time and change and recounted in her unmistakable voice - make A Welsh Childhood both touching and amusing. Patrick Sutherland has captured every mood in his exquisitely sensitive photographs: the hills, groves and meadows; the cottages, hill farms and seaside towns; the people as they work and play and the land, majestic in its solitude and austere in its beauty.
