Abstract

Cvetaeva was never completely forgotten after her death in 1941, but her star began to rise in the 1960s, when (as this article shows) her work and biography began to be cited widely, and by all kinds of poets, as signs of freedom and artistic integrity. The article traces references to Cvetaeva in the works of numerous later Russian poets, beginning with the Thaw generation and moving into the post-Soviet present.
