AIS Hosts an Honored Guest
Today AIS hosted a grand-niece of the most original and sincere Russian poets of the 20th century, Marina Tsvetaeva. She shared lots of interesting facts about Tsvetaeva’s life and work, easily communicating with our students in English as she has been living for many years in the US by now.
Olga Trukhacheva arrived here to celebrate 125 years from the birth of her grandmother, Anastasia Tsvetaeva, who got her name mentioned as a famous Russian prose writer and an essayist. «Amor», one of her world known novels, was handed over to us today by the honoured guest enriching our AIS library.
The Head of Yelabuga English Club, Svetlana Anderzyanova, telling AIS students about the works of the great poetess and complementing the speech of Olga Trukhacheva, read a poem by Marina Tsvetaeva «Here a window shines…» in English and Russian. The performance struck a strong chord with the children and one of the Grade 6 students responded by reciting her own poem.
An incredibly informative and hearty meeting with the relative of a key figure in Russian poetry will remain in the memory of our students for long and, perhaps, will awaken in them certain creative initiatives.
