June 17 - Anna Akhmatova (1889-1966) – Anna Akhmatova was a member of the great quartet of 20th century Russian poets. Her life spanned in the reign of Nicholas and Alexandra, World War I, the Russian revolution, the purges of the 1930's, World War II, and the Cold War. Beneath her aloof exterior, she was brooding, passionate and lyrical. She attracted powerful friends and admirers – Boris Pasternak, Modigliani, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Marc Chagall, and Joseph Brodsky. She also made powerful enemies – Lenin, Stalin, and Krushchev. Both of her husbands were killed by the Russian state and her only child, a son, spent 18 years as a political prisoner. She was officially ostracized and silenced on orders from Stalin himself. Anna Akhmatova's life itself is a great epic poem; glorious, tragic, dark and uplifting. Her story will captivate you as it has for millions of others.
