Apr 19th, 2022 by theanxiouspoet
There will be excerpts from the cycle of poems entitled 'Some Canvasses' on my website www.adriangrscott.com
The poem 'What shall I do with the body i've been given' i from Osip Mandelshtam - Selected Poems - Penguin Modern Classics. Other great poetry can be read in the 'Four of Us - Pasternak, Akhmatova, Tsvetaeva, Mandelshtam'. If you want to read Doctor Zhivago there are some great versions, the translation by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky is very good.
Good compilations of poetry are 'The Zoo of the New - A Book of Exceptional Poems from Sappho to Muldoon' or 'A Poem for Every Night of the Year - Edited by Allie Esiri'.
