Monument to silver age poetess Marina Tsvetaeva
“I do not accept eternity!
Why did you bury me?
I don’t like to be underground
Taken from my beloved land! “
And on her beloved land, in Russia, constantly appear monuments, sculptures and plaques perpetuating the memory of the poetess. And one of the most famous, perhaps, is the monument on the shore of the river Oka in Tarusa. Here Marina Tsvetaeva – the prodigal daughter, barefoot, and bent, as if always guilty, stands with her back to the river. Nevertheless, monuments to Tsvetaeva do not decorate every park and every public garden, or a street of every city. And this is right.
“Glory! – I did not want you:
And I couldn’t cope with you.”
Even during her lifetime, she was not controllable by anyone or anything. August 31, 1941 Tsvetaeva committed suicide. The poetess was buried in the city of Elabuga, the Peter and Paul Cemetery.
