The Anna Akhmatova File

Formerly prohibited by Soviet officials and secretly lauded by citizens, Anna Akhmatova's renowned paean "Requiem" testifies to the oppression endured by Russians under Stalin's regime.

Passages from this eminent poet's diary are used to study her character, and are combined with discussion of her contemporaries Boris Pasternak, Vladimir Mayakovsky, and Mikhail Sostchenko, to examine the plight of the artist in times of unwavering censorship.

This is a unique moving portrait of the extraordinary Soviet poet, Anna Akhmatova. Although her work was banned and went unpublished for 17 years, her poem "Requiem" became the underground anthem for the millions who suffered under Stalin.

Sin embargo, lo femenino está en otra parte, siempre ha estado en otra parte: ahí está el secreto de su fuerza. Así como se dice que una cosa dura porque su existencia es inadecuada a su esencia, hay que decir que lo femenino seduce porque nunca está donde se piensa.
