Overview of Akhmatova's Petersburg

In the poetry of Anna Akhmatova, the 19th century myth of Petersburg, the "accursed," "unreal" city, is filtered through the vision of a poet born in Imperial Russia and destined to confront the terrors of Soviet rule. The city that emerges embodies loss and dislocation, continuity and miraculous survival. This "scholarly and imaginative study" (New York Review of Books) "convincingly demonstrates that a good part of Akhmatova's verse could never have been written but for the Petersburg environment"(Russian Review).
