The poems of Dr. Zhivago/ translated with a commentary by Donald Davie
by Pasternak, Boris Leonidovich
Boris Pasternak is one of the best Russian poets of the twentieth century. Although his main world-wide recognized achievement is the novel Doctor Zhivago for which he received a Nobel prize in 1958, Pasternak's verses are always very enjoyable. This book contains English translation of his poems written on behalf of the main character of his renowned book. I like them very much and want everybody else to experience the beauty of fine words that leave long-lasting wonderful impressions.
