Through the poetry of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Russian authors, including Pushkin and Akhmatova, Poetry Reader for Russian Learners helps upper-beginner, intermediate, and advanced Russian students refine their language skills. Poems are coded by level of difficulty. The text facilitates students’ interaction with authentic texts by means of a complete set of learning tools, including biographical sketches of each poet, stress marks, annotations, exercises, questions for discussion, and a glossary. An ancillary Web site containing audio files for all poems can be found below.

Julia Titus is senior lector in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at Yale University. She is the editor of the annotated reader The Meek One: A Fantastic Story, by Fyodor Dostoevsky.

"The author has provided a very practical annotated anthology of Russian poetry that I can see being used in a variety of language learning environments."—Michael Pesenson, University of Texas, Austin

"Grammatical and vocabulary exercises, discussion questions, and audio make this reader quite unique."—Lina Steiner, University of Chicago
