—Marina Tsvetaeva, Poetry, March 2012
Over at Tin House, Maria DeSanctis’s 1987 discussion with poet Joseph Brodsky about literary reforms in Moscow:
MD: Then who do you consider the most significant writers in the Russian language?
JB: …Platonov is one of the greatest Russian poet[s], absolutely singular. And Tsvetaeva. These are huge and significant writers. For Russians, Tsvetaeva might be the most important of all.
