The Poem of the End

The Poem of the End

"The Poem of the End" is a major poem by the White Russian symbolist poet Marina Tsvetaeva.

Written in Prague in 1924, the poem details the end of a passionate affair with Konstantin Boeslavovich Rozdevitch, a former military officer. Each of the sections deals with the crossing of a bridge and the symbolism is echoed relentlessly throughout the poem; the mood is unremittingly tense and foreboding.

:Lovers for the most:part are without hope: passion:also is just:a bridge, a means of connection

(from the Elaine Feinstein translation).
