Composing the Work an Ill-Fated Poet Never Began [Russia]:
Now, in a new book published here, Tzvetan Todorov, a Bulgarian-born French philosopher and literary critic, believes he has found a way of introducing Tsvetayeva to a larger public outside Russia. In "Vivre Dans le Feu: Confessions" (Éditions Robert Laffont), or "Living in Fire: Confessions," Mr. Todorov has organized extracts from nine volumes of her letters, notes and diaries into what he calls the autobiography she never wrote. [...]

Meanwhile, Mr. Todorov noted, Russia has totally embraced her.

"There is a real cult around her," he said. "The nail she used to hang herself has become a relic. The places where she stayed have become museums, almost shrines. She was the victim of two totalitarianisms, and her destiny has become the embodiment of the tragic destiny of the Russian people."
