Tsvetaeva's last book of poems - one of only 400 copies for sale.
Written in the early years of her emigration to Western Europe, Tsvetaeva wanted to publish the book in Russia in 1924 on the grounds that it did not contain any political poems. Gosizdat, the state publishing house, however, did not give their consent and so she had to print the collection in Paris four years later, using money she had raised with subscriptions. All of Tsvetaeva's émigré editions were banned for circulation in the USSR.
