Milestones (1922) is regarded as Marina Tsvetaeva’s first mature collection and remains one of the highlights of her entire career as a poet. It is a lyrical diary for 1916, the final year of Tsarist Russia, before the twin revolutions of February and October 1917. A young woman aged 23 is seen grappling with motherhood and marriage, with love, sex and friendship, with the traditions of the Orthodox church and her own instinctive polytheism, with the literary environment where she is reaching maturity and, last but not least, with the staggering dimensions of her own talent.
