This review is from: Yevtushenko: Selected Poems: Selected Poems (Penguin Classics) (Kindle Edition)
I first read the Selected Poems of Yevgeny Yevtushenko (published 1969) in the early 70s and have remembered it since then. It has been such a pleasure to re read alongside Yevtushenko's A Precocious Autobiography (published 1963) which adds resonance and gives a background to the man and his poetry. I would say these books are a must for anyone who is interested in Russian literature and history.
