The Russian Jerusalem: heretics and heroines

Literature talk by Elaine Feinstein

Distinguished writer Elaine Feinstein tells the story of the great Russian poets of Stalin’s Terror, Marina Tsvetaeva and Anna Akhmatova; explaining how their legacy has haunted her as a biographer, poet and translator, and now in her evocative autobiographical novel, The Russian Jerusalem. She discusses history, memory, research and re-imagining in conversation with Fiona Sampson, editor of Poetry Review.
