This anthology presents the writings of Lydia Pasternak Slater (1902–1989), sister of Boris Pasternak. Lydia Pasternak Slater lived successively in Russia, Germany and England, and wrote in all three languages. Her poetry is largely lyrical, occasionally humorous and always original and striking. She also wrote a number of short stories and later in life became widely known as a translator of Boris Pasternak’s poems. The anthology includes her critical articles about her brother’s work and about the art of translation.
