Despite being virtually unknown early on in her writing career, Marina Tsvetaeva is now one of the most popular Russian women writers in the West. This chapter discusses a careful dissection of her work and poems. Tsvetaeva was firmly against the Soviet stance during the early years after the Revolution in Russia. She has also become a symbol of the artist that is tormented by political repression, similar to Akhmatova.

Keywords:   Marina Tsvetaeva, women writers, Revolution in Russia, Akhmatova
