This chapter discusses the different poems of Anna Akhmatova, which are less complex in lexical, thematic, and metrical terms. Her poems are also more accessible than those of other Russian female poets, including the poems by Tsvetaeva. As a poet, Akhmatova was able to perpetuate the tradition of feminine poetry and applied different strategies such as self-realisation. As such, Akhmatova is currently known as the most outstanding poetessa in all of Russia.

Keywords:   Anna Akhmatova, feminine poetry, self-realisation, poetessa, lexical, thematic, metrical
