Sofia Parnok, The Roses of Pieria, first edition, Moscow & St. Petersburg, 1922.
The 2nd work of verse by Sofia Parnok, the first out lesbian poet in Russia. She had a scandalous affair with the more famous poet Marina Tsvetaevna - just see if you can find mention of Parnok or the affair, in any of Tsvetaevna’s collected works in translation today.
The title comes from a fragment of Sappho:
Dead you will lie there and no memory of you/ Shall there be / and no desire for you in time to come; / for you have no share In the roses of Pieria, / but unseen even in the house of Hades / you shall flit among the fading corpses, flown away.
