„Melvyn Bragg and guests dis­cuss the work, ideas and life of the Russ­ian poet whose work was cel­e­brat­ed in C20th both for its qual­i­ty and for what it rep­re­sent­ed, writ­ten under cen­sor­ship in the Stal­in years.
Her best known poem, Requiem, was writ­ten after her son was impris­oned part­ly as a threat to her and, to avoid pun­ish­ment for cre­at­ing it, she passed it on to her sup­port­ers to be mem­o­rised, line by line, rather than writ­ten down. She was a prob­lem for the author­i­ties and became sig­nif­i­cant inter­na­tion­al­ly, as her work came to sym­bol­ise resis­tance to polit­i­cal tyran­ny and the preser­va­tion of pre-Rev­o­lu­tion­ary lib­er­al val­ues in the Sovi­et era.“
(BBC, Melvyn Bragg, Simon Tillot­son )
