The book became one of the most significant stages of Tsvetaeva's poetic work, and also turned out to be the last lifetime edition of the poetess. In her letter to M. Gorky in October 1927, Tsvetaeva writes about the release of her book: "If You could somehow arrange its access to Russia, it would be wonderful (there is no politics in it) and the thing would return to its homeland. No one needs it here, but in Russia they still remember me" (Novy Mir. 1969. No. 4. P. 200). In Russia the book was published only in 1990. Bibliography: Rozanov. No. 4239; Turchinsky.
