Zitate Anna Andrejewna Achmatowa

„A new epoch has begun. You and I will wait for it together.“

—  Anna Akhmatova

Remarks to her friend Lydia Chukovskaya (March 1956), as quoted in Joseph Stalin : A Biographical Companion (1999) by Helen Rappaport, p. 2
Kontext: Each of our lives is a Shakespearean drama raised to the thousandth degree. Mute separations, mute black, bloody events in every family. Invisible mourning worn by mothers and wives. Now the arrested are returning, and two Russias stare each other in the eyes: the ones that put them in prison and the ones who were put in prison. A new epoch has begun. You and I will wait for it together.

„Surely the reckoning will be made
after the passing of this cloud.
We are the people without tears,
straighter than you … more proud…“

—  Anna Akhmatova

I am not one of those who left the land..." (1922), translated in Poems of Akhmatova (1973) by Stanley Kunitz and Max Hayward
Kontext: But here, in the murk of conflagration,
where scarcely a friend is left to know
we, the survivors, do not flinch
from anything, not from a single blow.
Surely the reckoning will be made
after the passing of this cloud.
We are the people without tears,
straighter than you … more proud...

„I don't know if you're alive or dead.“

—  Anna Akhmatova

"I Don't Know If You're Alive Or Dead" (1915)
Kontext: I don't know if you're alive or dead.
Can you on earth be sought,
Or only when the sunsets fade
Be mourned serenely in my thought?

„As a white stone in the well's cool deepness,
There lays in me one wonderful remembrance.
I am not able and don't want to miss this:
It is my torture and my utter gladness.“

—  Anna Akhmatova

As a White Stone... (1916)
Kontext: As a white stone in the well's cool deepness,
There lays in me one wonderful remembrance.
I am not able and don't want to miss this:
It is my torture and my utter gladness. I think, that he whose look will be directed
Into my eyes, at once will see it whole.

„I am that shadow on the threshold
defending my remnant peace.“

—  Anna Akhmatova

Poem without a Hero (1963)
Kontext: Dread. Bottomless dread...
I am that shadow on the threshold
defending my remnant peace.

„Sweet to me was not the voice of man,
But the wind's voice was understood by me.“

—  Anna Akhmatova

"Willow" (1940)
Kontext: Sweet to me was not the voice of man,
But the wind's voice was understood by me.
The burdocks and the nettles fed my soul,
But I loved the silver willow best of all.

„This cruel age has deflected me,
like a river from this course.“

—  Anna Akhmatova

"This Cruel Age has deflected me..." (1944)
Kontext: This cruel age has deflected me,
like a river from this course.
Strayed from its familiar shores,
my changeling life has flowed
into a sister channel.
How many spectacles I've missed:
the curtain rising without me,
and falling too. How many friends
I never had the chance to meet.

„Are the last days near, perhaps?
I have forgotten your lessons,
prattlers and false prophets,
but you haven't forgotten me.“

—  Anna Akhmatova

Poem without a Hero (1963)
Kontext: Are the last days near, perhaps?
I have forgotten your lessons,
prattlers and false prophets,
but you haven't forgotten me.
As the future ripens in the past,
so the past rots in the future —
a terrible festival of dead leaves.

„He is no better and no worse,
but he is free of Lethe's curse:
his warm hand makes a human pledge.“

—  Anna Akhmatova

Poem without a Hero (1963)
Kontext: All the mirrors on the wall
show a man not yet appeared
who could not enter this white hall.
He is no better and no worse,
but he is free of Lethe's curse:
his warm hand makes a human pledge.
Strayed from the future, can it be
that he will really come to me,
turning left from the bridge?

„Nothing I counted mine, out of my life,
is mine to take…“

—  Anna Akhmatova

Requiem; 1935-1940 (1963; 1987)
Kontext: No use to fall down on my knees
and beg for mercy's sake.
Nothing I counted mine, out of my life,
is mine to take...

„O let the organ, many-voiced, sing boldly,
O let it roar like spring's first thunderstorm!“

—  Anna Akhmatova

Translated by Irina Zheleznova
Kontext: O let the organ, many-voiced, sing boldly,
O let it roar like spring's first thunderstorm!
My half-closed eyes over your young bride's shoulder
Will meet your eyes just once and then no more.

„We aged a hundred years, and this
happened in a single hour“

—  Anna Akhmatova

"In Memoriam, July 19, 1914"
White Flock (1917)
Kontext: We aged a hundred years, and this
happened in a single hour:
the short summer had already died,
the body of the ploughed plains smoked.

„Why is this century worse than those others?“

—  Anna Akhmatova

"Why is this century worse than those others?" (1919), translated by Yevgeny Bonver (2000)
Kontext: Why is this century worse than those others?
Maybe, because, in sadness and alarm,
It only touched the blackest of the ulcers,
But couldn't heal it in its span of time.

„I have lit my treasured candles,
one by one, to hallow this night.“

—  Anna Akhmatova

Poem without a Hero (1963)
Kontext: I have lit my treasured candles,
one by one, to hallow this night.
With you, who do not come,
I wait the birth of the year.
Dear God!
the flame has drowned in crystal,
and the wine, like poison, burns
Old malice bites the air,
old ravings rave again,
though the hour has not yet struck.

„You've been turned in to my reminiscences
To make eternal the unearthly sadness.“

—  Anna Akhmatova

As a White Stone... (1916)
Kontext: I knew: the gods turned once, in their madness,
Men into things, not killing humane senses.
You've been turned in to my reminiscences
To make eternal the unearthly sadness.

„Now no one will listen to songs.
The prophesied days have begun.“

—  Anna Akhmatova

"Now no one will listen to songs..." from Plantain (1921), translated by Richard McKane
Kontext: Now no one will listen to songs.
The prophesied days have begun.
Latest poem of mine, the world has lost its
wonder,
Don't break my heart, don't ring out.
