Andrei Tarkovsky is widely regarded as one of the most significant filmmakers of modern times. Fundamental to his practice are the poems that his father, Arsenii, created. They resonate through many of the films, and offer levels of meaning which lie undetected to the unknowing eye. For the first time this book presents not only accurate and beautiful renditions of these poems in English, but also a penetrating and illuminating presentation of the dynamic creative relationship between father and son that informed so much of Andrei Tarkovsky’s work. Selected either because of their relevance to Andrei’s films or simply through personal choice, the 148 poems explore univeral themes such as love, nature, family, aging, war and memory. With two introductory essays, extensive notes and appendices, this volume extends the usual parameters of a poetry book by placing it within the context of the father/son and poet/film-maker relationship that so dominates the Tarkovsky story.
