Portraits Without Frames : Selected Poems, Paperback / softback Book

Portraits Without Frames : Selected Poems Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Lev Ozerov's finest book, Portraits Without Frames comprises fifty intimate, skillfully crafted accounts of meetings with important figures, ranging from fellow poets Anna Akhmatova and Boris Pasternak, to prose writers Isaac Babel and Andrey Platonov, to artists and composers Vladimir Tatlin and Dmitry Shostakovich.

It is both a testament to an extraordinary life and a perceptive mini-encyclopedia of Soviet culture.

Composed in delicate, rhythmic free verse, Ozerov's portraits are like nothing else in Russian poetry.
