Family Correspondence, 1921-1960eBook - 2010
This selection of Boris Pasternak's correspondence with his parents and sisters from 1921 to 1960including more than illustrations and photosis an authoritative, indispensable introduction and guide to the great writer's life and work. His letters are accomplished literary works in their own right, on a par with his poetry in their intensity, frankness, and dazzling stylistic play. In addition, they offer a rare glimpse into his innermost self, significantly complementing the insights gained from his work. They are especially poignant in that after 1923 Pasternak was never to see his parents again.
