Overview of A Russian Psyche: The Poetic Mind of Marina TSvetaeva

Russian poet Marina Tsvetaeva's powerful poetic voice and her tragic life have often prompted literary commentators to treat her as either a martyr or a monster. Born in Russia in 1892, she emigrated to Europe in 1922, returned to the Soviet Union at the height of the Stalinist Terror, and committed suicide in 1941. Alyssa Dinega focuses on the poetry, rediscovering Tsvetaeva as a serious thinker with a coherent artistic and philosophical vision.

"Dinega knows her own mind. Without idealizing or simplifying her subject, she never loses control, compassion, or awe."-Caryl Emerson, Princeton University

Author Biography: Alyssa Dinega is the Rev. Edmund P. Joyce, C.S.C. Assistant Professor of Russian Language and Literature at the University of Notre Dame.

Synopsis of A Russian Psyche: The Poetic Mind of Marina TSvetaeva

In this revision of her dissertation (from the U. of Wisconsin, Madison), Dinega (Russian, U. of Notre Dame) applies gender theory to the life and letters of the Russian poet Tsvetaeva, exploring in particular Tsvetaevàs search for a muse. Dinega has translated many of Tsvetaevàs poems and her letters (including her correspondence with Rainer Maria Rilke) and these are incorporated into her analysis, making this a rich resource for scholars and fans of the poet.
