About this Item: Miunkhen T-vo Zarubezhnikh izdaniy, 1963. Small octavo (19.2 x 14.2 cm). 23 pp., including title and a portrait of Akhmatova. Publisher's wrappers. Fine example of the first edition of one of Akhmatova's most famous works.Uncommon, especially in such fresh condition: one of 500 copies only. Written between 1935 and 1940, 'Requiem' was not published in Russia until 1987. Two personal dramas in particular - the arrest and imprisonment of her son for 18 years and of her husband, who would finally die in a camp - inspired the specific content of the work, a sequence of poetry and prose portraying some of the full-fledged horrors endured by Soviet citizens who were wrongly imprisoned, as well as the anguish of their relatives, especially the mothers and wives,those women with whom Akhmatova stood in line outside the prison walls. While Isaiah Berlin had predicted in 1946 that 'Requiem' would never be published in the Soviet Union, it was memorised by the author and a few close friends for fear that writing them down would jeopardise their lives. As stipulated by the publisher, the present edition was received "from Russia and published without the consent of the author", three years before her death. Emblematic denunciation of Stalinist repression and consecutive sufferings, 'Requiem' is considered by many to be Akhmatova's finest work. Seslavinsky, Tamizdat 9. Seller Inventory # 94824

Diese sehr seltene Ausgabe erschien in kleinster Auflage ohne ihr Wissen in München. 1964 erschien eine deutsche Übersetzung. ++++++++++ Item Description: Tovarishchestvo Zarubezhnykh Pisatelei, Munich, 1963. 8vo, frontispiece portrait, original printed white wrappers A fine copy, preserved in a folding cloth box First edition of Akhmatova’s masterpiece, first published in this form in the West, without the poet’s knowledge, fourteen years prior to its publication in the Soviet Union in the journal Novyi mir in April 1987. "From 1925 until 1940, there was an unofficial ban on the publication of Akhmatova’s poetry. Akhmatova concentrated on scholarship, immersing herself in her critical studies of Pushkin. But in 1935, following the arrest of Nikolay Punin, the man she was living with, and Lev Gumilyov, her son, she began to compose the 15-part poetry and prose cycle Requiem. Not daring to write it down, she recited various parts to friends, including Lidiya Chukovskaya (Korney Chukovsky’s daughter), who memorized and reassembled them. Requiem, a tribute to the ordeal of the victims of the Terror, and the women who waited in the prison lines hoping to get word of them, is based on her own experience in Leningrad, where Lev was imprisoned for 17 months. In this great cycle, the "you" becomes all Russians imprisoned and tortured by their own government. Requiem was finally published in the Soviet Union in April 1987, in the journal Novy mir, was included in a book of her poems, Anna Akhmatova, Ya – golos vash. (Anna Akhmatova, I – am your voice. Moscow 1989) and in subsequent editions of her work." – Judith Hemschemeyer, from her preface to The Complete Poems of Anna Akhmatova (Boston and Edinburgh, 1992). Assessing Akhmatova’s unique place in Russian poetry, and the profound identification of the Russian people with her, and she with them, during the Stalinist period, Joseph Brodsky wrote: "At certain periods of history it is only poetry that is capable of dealing with reality by condensing it into something graspable, something that otherwise couldn’t be retained by the mind. In that sense, the whole nation took up the pen name of Akhmatova." – Joseph Brodsky, The New York Public Library’s Books of the Century, (Oxford University Press, 1996), p. 174.
