Short biography
Marina Tsvetaeva is considered one of Russia's greatest 20th-century poets. She published her first collection of poems, Evening Album, at age 18. She survived and wrote about the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the Moscow famine that followed. Following the death of her daughter Irina from hunger in 1919, Tsvetaeva left Russia and lived with her family in Paris, Berlin and Prague in unremitting poverty before returning to Moscow in 1939. Her husband Sergei Efron was arrested and executed in 1941 and her other daughter Ariadna (Alya) was sent to a forced labor camp. That year, when the German Army invaded the USSR in World War II, Tsvetaeva was evacuated to Yelabuga with her son. She committed suicide shortly after. Besides poems, she also wrote verse plays and prose pieces.
