Forward Arts Foundation in Conversation with Vicki Feaver
FORWARD ARTS FOUNDATION: When did you start writing poetry and what drew you into it?
VICKI FEAVER: As a child I found a book of William Blake’s poems in my parents’ bookcase. I wrote my name, Victoria Turton (as I was then) and address inside the cover and kept it under my bed and read it at night by torchlight. When someone asked, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ and I said, ‘A poet’, they laughed. Aged about fourteen, still harbouring the secret ambition to be a poet, I discovered Dylan Thomas. Long before the film Dead Poets Society, I stole matches and a candle, poured sherry into a cough-mixture bottle to swig, and read his poems to my friends in a wine cellar deep under our school.
FAF: Please talk about your development as a writer of poetry. Tell us when you first felt you were a poet and how it went from there.
VF: I didn’t begin writing seriously until my mid-thirties when the last of my four children went to school. The anecdote in the poem ‘1974’ is true. A man at a party asked me ‘What do you do in the afternoons?’ Desperate not to admit that I was a housewife, mother and typist for my then husband, I lied, ‘I’m a poet’. It had the effect, as I put it in the poem, of
jolting myself to life:
a woman buried under ice
with the poems burning inside.
Soon after, I joined a poetry class at Morley College, taught by Colin Falk. Selima Hill was a fellow student. My first book, Close Relatives, was published by Secker in 1981.
By the time my second book, The Handless Maiden (Cape, 1994) was published, I was living alone and in a full-time teaching post. It was an enormously important book for me. The title poem is based on the fairy tale of a girl whose hands were cut off but grew again when she plunged her arms into a spring to save her drowning baby. Interpretted psychoanalytically, as the recovery of her lost creativity, it was my story. Fairy tales, bible stories and legends were perfect vehicles for poems that broke away from what I regarded as the tameness of my previous work. ‘Gloves off’, as Adrienne Rich put it, I wrote ‘Ironing’, ‘Marigolds’ and ‘Judith’, a poem about the murder of Holofernes that won the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem.
The Book of Blood (Cape, 2006) reflected a move to the country, first to a house with a toad in the cellar (‘Bufo Bufo’) and then, remarried, to a house with bats in the roof. Later, after a move to Scotland, a gun entered the house with surprising results. Doubtful at first, about the killing of pigeons and rabbits, I describe how
I join in the cooking: jointing
and slicing, stirring and tasting –
excited as if the King of Death
had arrived to feast, stalking
out of winter woods,
his black mouth
sprouting golden crocuses.
FAF: What does being shortlisted for the Forward Prizes mean for you?
VF: It means a huge amount to me. The Book of Blood was shortlisted, too. But the twelve year gap between the books and the fact that I don’t move in poetry circles, and that there are so many good poets writing and less space for reviews, means that the recognition of being on the Forward shortlist is even more precious. Until now, I’ve had to be content with lovely emails from my children and sister and friends. Among them was Wendy Cope who wrote, ‘I sat down and read it from cover to cover without getting bored. There aren’t many new books of poems I can say that about . It’s great to find one I can understand, enjoy and admire.’
FAF: Please tell us something about the creation of your shortlisted collection, from first words to final book. Does it mark a departure or change from your earlier work? Which poems in this collection are most important to you?
VF: Neither the title, I Want! I Want!, nor the idea of a book that follows a ladder of life from childhood to old-age, came immediately. I set out initially to write a book of poems about childhood, a subject that had provided rich material in previous books. The first poems I wrote, such as ‘Boy with a Knife’ and ‘Elocution’ centred on incidents from caravan holidays and school, still vivid in my memory. Further poems, ‘War Baby’, ‘The Doll with a China Head’, ‘VE Day Photo’ and ‘Pugilist’, reveal a child fought over by her mother and grandmother, absorbing their grief for her uncle killed fighting at the end of World War II, and upset by the arrival of a new baby. I stopped writing poems about childhood because I found it too upsetting. My mother was dead, but it still felt wrong to write negatively about her, or about sibling rivalry. I didn’t want to upset my sister.
Fortunately, filled with these and other anxieties, I wrote the poem ‘Prayer at Seventy’ and, soon after was offered a commission to write poems about old-age for a Saltire Society pamphlet. I might have turned it down – I’m not good at deadlines – but I’d recently run a poetry workshop at the former home of the artist, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham. Her injunction to her ninety-two-year-old self, ‘Do it now. Say it now. Don’t be afraid’, inspired me not only to write the poems for the pamphlet but to go on and finish the book. ‘The Blue Wave’, one of my favourite poems, imagines her working on a painting that I remembered seeing in her house: lifting her arm in
a single brave
upwards sweep with a wide
distemper brush, so loaded
with paint the canvas filled
with the glittering blue wall
of a wave before it falls.
The first poems I wrote addressed my fears about old-age: memory loss in ‘Forgetfulness’, the ageing body in ‘Bone-house’, and, in ‘The Mower’, the maddening way that when I was young and unhappy time crawled past and now I was older and happier it speeded up like ‘an out-of-control mower […] decapitating all the flowers’. I wrote cheerful poems too: ‘All Kinds of Horses’, an antidote to dementia about the playfulness and sensual delight of being old. The roses in ‘These Roses You Gave Me’, are versions of me and my friends, like ‘elderly actresses / performing until they drop’:
one boasts an errant streak
of canary yellow, another,
a bush of gold stamens
The childhood and old-age sections almost complete, I created a middle section containing poems like ‘Head Wars’ and ‘Bramble Arm’ about the effects of childhood stress on my mind and body. Also included were poems on the theme of wanting – ‘The Snow Queen’ who wants a husband, ‘The Mermaid’ who wants to leave the sea. ‘The Surgeon’s Widow’ (another of my favourite poems), is so grief-stricken by the death of her husband she digs up his bones and reassembles his skeleton. Putting into her my feelings of grief and longing for the loss of partners I’d loved, I found it easy to imagine her washing the skeleton husband, dancing with him, carrying him up the stairs, and slipping into bed beside him:
his knees slotted into the crook
of her knees, her buttocks
cradled by his pelvis,
her head on the pillow
beside his, dreaming
of his breath on her neck.
The title of the book and cover illustration came from the poem ‘to William Blake’ which describes how, reading his poems as a child, I decided to be a poet, ‘undaunted / as the child you pictured – / one foot on a ladder / reaching to the moon, / crying, ‘I want! I want!’
Finally, after writing the poem ‘The Ladder’, I suggested to Robin Robertson, my editor at Cape, the idea of ladder motifs to separate the sections; testing his patience to the limit by wanting them drawn to just to the right degree of wobbliness.
FAF: At this moment, the world has been turned upside down by Covid-19. How do you think these extraordinary times will affect your readers’ response to your work?
VF: It is a strange thing to say about a book that looks back at a life from old-age and contemplates an uncertain future but I hope that it might be consoling. There are some sad poems in the book. But overall it’s a book about growth and survival and the healing powers of nature and the imagination.
One of the poems that cheers me most is ‘Blackbird Shower’. I wrote it after I’d stood for ages in the shower, so lost in worry that I hadn’t noticed what should have been the pleasurable sensation of hot spray bouncing off my skin. Looking through the bathroom window to see a blackbird having a wonderful time splashing in a puddle, I imagined swapping my ‘wrinkled skin and shrivelled spirit / for his glossy plumage / and joie de vivre’, flying through the window and, sinking my breast into a puddle’s coolness,
then fluffing out my feathers
and shaking myself,
sending a spray
of glittering drops
over my back and wings.
Another poem that cheers me is ‘Old Woman in a Forsythia Bush’, written after a particularly grim winter. This year, when spring arrived as it still does, whatever nightmares beset the world, I sat among the bush’s ‘starry stems’ trying to recapture the time-out-of-time experience of feeling
buoyant again, as if sprung
from my body and floating
above it, like a seed flung
from the grey head
of a dandelion.
FAF: Which poets do you admire most and what do you value in their work?
VF: For a long time it was poets from the canon of English Literature: Herbert, Donne, Keats, Coleridge, Wordsworth and Blake. Then I discovered John Clare and Edward Thomas. It was only in my thirties, when I began to write poetry, that I discovered women poets: Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti and then Sylvia Plath, Ann Sexton, Denise Levertov, Stevie Smith, Adrienne Rich and, later, Sharon Olds, and since then many more. What I admire about all these very different poets is the clarity of their imagery and language. Also, their power to move me and excite me with a little quiver of envy (Oh, if only I could have written that!). I like all kinds of poems: story poems, place poems, object poems, riddles, confessional poems and dramatic poems that speak in the voice of a character, or thing. When I discover a poem I like very much, I copy it into my notebook: most recently, Yeats’s poem ‘The Stare’s Nest by my Window’ and ‘Wish’ by Mary Jean Chan.
FAF: What is next for you as a poet?
VF: I never set out with a plan. The only confidence I have in writing poetry at all is that when an idea for a poem comes into my head I usually can’t resist trying to get it into words. Hopefully when I’ve accumulated enough poems they will suggest a possible direction.
FAF: What advice would you give to anyone starting out in poetry today?
VF: Read as much poetry as you can, from the past as well as contemporary poets. Keep a notebook. Copy in to it poems that you really love. Maybe in another notebook (though I have only one) write down immediately things that strike you as interesting material for poems. Be patient. Don’t get so excited at writing a poem that you send it off, as I have often done, when it is only half-cooked.

PEOPLE — BIOPHYSICAL IMMUNOLOGYMarco Fritzsche, PhD
Phone: +44 (0) 1865 612685
Biomedical sciences increasingly recognise the importance of biophysics in health and disease. For the most part, this is due to an emerging new perspective of the broad impact of mechanobiology on the immune response. Our Biophysical Immunology (BPI) laboratory aims to unravel the impact of these mechanobiological aspects on immunopathology. For this mission, we develop custom-built microscopy, quantitative bioimaging modalities, and analysis methods. Having had a steep transition from theoretical physics to immunology, our research aims to join biology, bioimaging, and computation analysis methods to unravel contentious biomedical research in health and disease from a biophysical perspective.

Alexander Sirotin: Lermontov, Falk and the connection of times
In New York, the Jewish Repertory Theater plays the play “Death of a Salesman” by Arthur Miller.The play was translated into Yiddish. Miller, although Jewish by birth, wrote only in English. The play has become a classic of the world theater. Controversy erupted among theater critics. Some say that the classics can and should sound in any language. Others – that the Jews have enough of their classics, who wrote in Yiddish and Hebrew.
In this regard, I remembered that in the Moscow State Jewish Theater – GOSET – plays by the classics of world and Russian drama, for example, “King Lear” by Shakespeare and “The Spaniards” by Lermontov, were playing with great success…
And at the theater technical school (later college) at GOSET, students played in Yiddish translation by Schiller, Lessing, Moliere, Lope de Vega, Beaumarchais, Gutskov, Hugo, Maupassant, Feuchtwanger, Labisch … This is evidenced by old photographs, preserved in my family archive.
In 1934 one of the best vaudeville by Eugene Labiche “Millionaire, Dentist and Poor Man” was staged at GOSET. For the production, the authorities allowed Mikhoels to invite director Leon Mussinac from France.The scenery was created by Alexander Labas. The writer Jean-Richard Blok spoke highly of the performance, which, in his opinion, could decorate even the French stage. The main roles were played by Mikhoels and Zuskin. And in the crowd were students of the technical school. The photo below shows a scene from the play. In the center is my father Fishel (Fima) Lachman, who was then a student at the GOSET technical school.
All photos are of not very good quality, wrinkled, with scratches. The fact is that in 1949, when the order to close the GOSET came, it was ordered to “liquidate” the scenery and theatrical costumes, books, photographs, the entire archive.
In the courtyard of the theater (on Malaya Bronnaya), the “liquidators” burned books and photographs during the day, and at the end of the working day they filled fires with water.
When the “liquidators” were leaving, the actors’ dormitories (one was in the theater yard, the other in the three-story house No. 12 on Stankevich Street) came running by the most daring actors and pulled out from the burnt, wet heap what could still be saved.
Then the saved books and photographs were hidden in hiding places. I remember our closet in the corridor of the communal apartment on Stankevich Street.The wardrobe was always locked until the “thaw”. So some photographs have been preserved in our family archive. For example, here is a photograph of a student’s work – an excerpt from the play “The Marriage of Figaro” by Beaumarchais. Marceline – Sirotina, Suzanne – Agorevich.
Soon after Mikhoels accepted a graduate of the theater college Nehama Sirotina into the troupe of GOSET, he offered her the role of Noemi in Lermontov’s tragedy “The Spaniards”. The production was entrusted to the director from Leningrad, co-founder of the Lensovet Theater, Moisei Isaakovich Kroll.Mikhoels himself supervised the work.
He also invited Irakli Andronikov as a consultant to the Lermonologist. The performance was being prepared for the 200th anniversary of the death of Mikhail Yuryevich Lermontov. The play was translated into Hebrew by the playwright Aron Kushnirov. The music was written by Alexander Crane. The sets and costumes were created by Robert Rafailovich Falk.
My mother told me that he told the actors: “You should feel free, as if there are no costumes at all.”
And at the very beginning of the work on the costume, the artist asked the actors and actresses to strip naked so that he could see all the lines of the body.
Someone agreed, but my mother – and she was then 22 years old – did not want to undress, even to the point of giving up the role. Finally, Falk compromised and allowed her to pose in a swimsuit.
It so happened that in the late 1950s my mother brought me to Alexandra Veniaminovna Azarkh, the widow of the founder of the Moscow Jewish Theater, director Alexei Mikhailovich Granovsky-Azarkh.
She was once an actress, and then a teacher at the theater studio-technical school-school at GOSET until its closure.In the 1930s she taught acting to my mother, and in the early 1960s she prepared me to enter the Shchukin School.
Her sister – Raisa Veniaminovna Idelson-Labas – was Falk’s third wife. By the way, his second wife was the daughter of K.S. Stanislavsky Kira Alekseeva. Falk’s fourth and last wife Angelina Vasilievna Shchekin-Krotova was friends with sisters Alexandra and Raisa.
In the sisters’ room in a communal apartment on the 9th floor of a building opposite the Main Post Office, near the Tea House on Kirov Street, now Myasnitskaya, No. 21, apt.36, Angelina Vasilievna sometimes arranged small screenings of paintings by her late husband. As a student, I helped her with this: I put the paintings on a tripod floor easel, changed them.
Then Angelina Vasilievna began to invite me to Falk’s workshop for such help. The studio and apartment where Angelina Vasilievna lived were located in a rare beauty building on Prechistenka, at the corner of Soymonovsky passage. The workshop was in the attic, where there was a huge window. Daylight fell beautifully on the paintings, and Falk’s colors were striking in their richness.
Home screenings were held because open personal exhibitions of the artist were incredibly difficult to achieve. With sad laughter, we recalled how, during the famous painting exhibition in the Manezh, Khrushchev attacked the artists. He was especially outraged by Falk’s “Nude” painting. “What a naked woman is this!” He shouted. “Falk’s work,” they replied. “Valka? Remove this naked Valka! “After this scandal, Falk was not exhibited for a long time.
While leaving for America, I bought several theatrical sketches from Alexandra Veniaminovna.She confirmed that the sketches were made by Falk. There is no signature under them, but there is no doubt that this was done by the hand of a master.
Portrait of a young man – most likely associated with the play “Uriel Acosta” (play by Karl Gutskov). On the figure depicting a woman in full growth, there is an inscription on the side in Russian: “Reisele’s suit in America. Wandering stars.” To export sketches from the USSR, I received permission from the Ministry of Culture with the seal and signature of an art critic in civilian clothes. These figures are not in the catalogs. They have never been published.
I took pictures specifically for this article.
Even from black and white photographs, you can get some idea of Falk’s set design.
Not only Falk was associated with GOSET, but also such artists as Marc Chagall, Alexander Tyshler, Nathan Altman, Alexander Labas, Isaac Rabinovich … Alexandra Veniaminovna Azarkh loved to tell funny stories about Marc Chagall’s work in the Jewish Theater.
When the Granovsky Theater moved from Petrograd to Moscow, it was located in house number 12 on Bolshoy Chernyshevsky Lane (later Stankevich Street, now Voznesensky Lane).It was a three-story house with white tiles. On the second floor, a theater was equipped with a small stage and auditorium. Marc Chagall, whom Granovsky invited as the main artist, decided to paint the walls of the auditorium. But he did not limit himself to walls alone and painted armchairs: backs and seats. On the opening day of the theater, when the audience began to fill the hall, they were prevented from taking their seats by a very strange curly-haired young man who ran through the rows and shouted: “Wait! First look at what you are sitting on!”
Soon the theater was given new premises on Malaya Bronnaya, and in the old one the walls painted by Chagall were smeared over, and the chairs painted by him were thrown away.Here we recall the story of how in the 1960s Chagall proposed to create a museum named after him in his native Vitebsk and was ready to donate a dozen of his works, but the then Minister of Culture of the USSR Furtseva refused the gift: they say that bourgeois-nationalist painting is alien to the Soviet people this artist.
The house from which the Jewish Theater left was turned into a hostel for GOSET actors, then it was converted into communal apartments – 13 apartments on each floor, with a shared toilet, a shared bathroom, a shared kitchen and a shared telephone for 30 people.At the end of a long corridor on the third floor there was a room where Nehama Sirotina and Fishel Lachman lived and where I was born. Rather, I was born in the Grauerman maternity hospital on the Arbat, in which almost all of Moscow gave birth. 26 years after me, my son was born in the same maternity hospital. But that’s a completely different story.
I was born at the end of January 1945, when my father was still at the front. The mother said that rats were running around the hospital. I wanted to return to the theater as soon as possible.What name should I give my son? The mother-in-law’s name was Sarah. Maybe call your son Sasha? With whom to consult? Well, of course, with Solomon Mikhailovich Mikhoels – everyone and everything consulted with him. He looked at the baby that the actress had brought to the theater and said: “Alexander? That is Sender. Sender Mukdn. Macedonian. Good name.” And the issue was resolved. By the way, many of the GOSET acting families had sons with this then fashionable name.
Mother first brought and then brought me to the theater. During the performances, they sat me down in the lighting box to the right of the stage.I sat under the spotlight and, not noticing the heat, did not take my eyes off the stage. I was only 3 years old, but I remember two performances: “The Witch” and “Freilakhs”. In “The Witch” I was very worried when my mother, who played the evil stepmother, burned to death on the roof of the house. And in “Freilakhs” I looked with delight at the very beautiful dresses of dancing actresses. I remember the very young Emil Horovets in the role of the groom … I talk about him in this role in a two-hour documentary film dedicated to his memory (directed by Valery Shatin).
…In the room where Alexandra Veniaminovna Azarkh and Raisa Veniaminovna Idelson lived, there were several paintings. They didn’t just hang, but lived in this room with their sisters. I remember two well: on the right wall “Self-portrait in a red fez” by Falk, on the left “Girl with a Cat” by artist Pen – this is a portrait of young Raisa Veniaminovna with a cat on her knees. Alexandra Veniaminovna said that Yudel Peng spoke poor Russian and called this picture “Two Kisetski”. It was the same Peng who created the painting school in Vitebsk and taught to draw Marc Chagall, El Lissitzky, Oscar Meshchaninov, Osip Zadkin.
As a schoolboy, I first learned about these artists from Alexandra Veniaminovna. They were not mentioned in the Soviet school and in the Soviet press. In the house of Alexandra Veniaminovna, I first became acquainted with the painting of Chaim Soutine through French albums and catalogs that came from Paris. Azarh lived in France for several years, knew many poets, writers and artists. In particular, Modigliani. She joked about him: “After a good portion of hashish, the figures naturally began to swim, stretch out, and the eyes became narrow.Here is the answer to Modigliani’s painting. “
When I was at Alexandra Veniaminovna’s, it seemed to me that I was either in a Parisian attic in Montmartre, or in a Moscow literary salon of the early 20th century. They often talked about Blok and Mayakovsky, about Leela Brick, with whom Azarkh was well acquainted. Writers and poets who were not kind to the Soviet authorities often came here. Here I first saw and heard Evgenia Semyonovna Ginzburg, the author of “Steep Route” and mother of Vasily Aksyonov.
Here I met the Leningrad poet Viktor Krivulin and the Moscow writer Yuri Mamleev.But the most fun were the meetings of the former artists of GOSET. Especially when they were joined by the former director of the Jewish theater school, Moisey Solomonovich Belenky, a friend of Mikhoels. In 1949 he was arrested and sentenced to 10 years in labor camps in the case of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee. He served time in mines near Karaganda. After Stalin’s death, he was rehabilitated, released and returned to Moscow in 1954. When he came to Alexandra Veniaminovna, vodka appeared on the table and the feast was always accompanied by the amicable singing of Jewish songs from the performances of GOSET.
Belenky himself was the singer. Moreover, he sang very loudly, and even knocked to the beat on the table so that the spoons rang. I heard from him that among the Jews there were informers, informers, and among them, according to him, was the poet Aron Vergelis, editor-in-chief of the Jewish magazine “Sovetish Gameland”. Another poet, Itzik Fefer, collaborated with the KGB, who followed Mikhoels, but, despite his loyalty to the authorities, was shot with other Jewish writers in 1952. After Belenky’s death, I called his widow, the former GOSET actress Elsha Moiseevna Bezverkhnyaya, to Israel, when she celebrated her centenary (this was in 2010).She was practically blind, but her memory was excellent. The conversation turned about the artists and how they treated her when her husband was arrested. She named those who stopped greeting her and, seeing her, crossed to the other side of the street. I called the name and heard in response: “He is a scoundrel.” He called another, and again: “Scoundrel”. But we must remember with good those who acted nobly in relation to the comrades-in-arms and students of Mikhoels. Immediately after the GOSET was closed, actress Ettel Kovenskaya was not afraid to take Yuri Zavadsky to his Mossovet Theater.He gave her the role of Desdemona in Othello (with Mordvinov), Gertrude in Hamlet, introduced her to the title of Honored Artist of the RSFSR.
Zavadsky took director Nina Solomonovna Mikhoels, the youngest daughter of the “enemy of the people”, to the theater. Maria Osipovna Knebel invited the Jewish actor Schwarzer to the Central Children’s Theater. Joseph Gross (Colin) was taken over by the Pushkin Theater. Grigory Lampe – Ostrovsky Moscow Regional Theater. And the rector of the Shchukin School at the Vakhtangov Theater, Boris Evgenievich Zakhava, offered work to three Goset residents at once: Moisey Belenky – a position as a philosophy teacher, actress Elsha Bezverkhnya – a position as an employee of the secretariat for scheduling, and choreographer Yakov Itskhoki – a position as a teacher of stage dances.
Having entered the Shchukinskoye acting department, and then the directing department, I turned out to be a student of these wonderful, unforgettable teachers. I remember the respect for the memory of Mikhoels, declared an American spy and agent of the Joint, was shown during Stalin’s life by Ivan Semyonovich Kozlovsky, Sergei Vladimirovich Obraztsov, actor Khanov and many others.
As a student, then an actor, then a stage director and, finally, a writer, I continued to visit Alexandra Veniaminovna.To her I read my first poems, one-act plays, stories. Then we always drank tea with biscuits or dryers, and talked …
There was another house in Moscow, famous for drinking tea – this is the house of Viktor Ardov on Bolshaya Ordynka, house number 17, apt. 13. I met him when I was the director of the Creative Workshop of Satire and Humor at the Mosconcert. We were preparing a conference on humor on the stage, and Ardov was supposed to speak at it. Viktor Efimovich and I developed mutual sympathy, and we even wrote together several reviews of pop programs.Ardov was also from the old times. I came to see him after 6 pm. During the day he slept and got up around six. If he was still asleep, his wife Nina Antonovna Olshevskaya treated me to tea. Viktor Efimovich sometimes went out to the table right in his pajamas. He was generally an extravagant man. Much wittier in life than in literature. He was a master at impromptu. He loved to talk about his “findings”.
Once he met the Vakhtangov actor Vladimir Abramovich Etush, he said: “Now I see this figure!” Etush did not understand, and said: “Well, then what?” “There is no need to go further,” Ardov answered.“I said everything.” art workers, loudly so that everyone could hear, asked: “Have you read my book?” To this Ardov, without hesitation, quoted from Griboyedov: “I am not a reader of stupidity, but more exemplary.” When I asked Ardov about his origin, he replied : “I think I’m Ethiopian. Look how we are similar to the Emperor Haile Selassie the First! “And, being a good cartoonist, he immediately sketched his profile and the profile of Haile Selassie on a napkin.”You see! One face! I could be his double. I think, as in him, the blood of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba flows!” At these words, Ardov stuck out his chest and pulled up his goatee.
From time to time, the sons of Viktor Efimovich, Boris and Mikhail, joined the tea party. Boris later became an actor, and Mikhail became an Orthodox priest. What would his grandfather Efim Moiseevich Zigberman feel to know about this! The ways of the Jews are truly inscrutable! However, I enjoy reading the memoirs of Archpriest Mikhail Ardov.
In the room where we drank tea with dryers and jam, opposite the table hung a large portrait of Anna Andreevna Akhmatova, painted by Ardov’s stepson, actor Alexei Batalov …
… In America, in New York, my mother dictated to the translator Lynn Wisson your memories. She said that “The Spaniards” was rehearsed in 1940 and premiered in February 1941. Then each GOSET premiere was widely discussed by reviewers of not only Jewish, but also central newspapers up to Pravda.Reviews about “The Spaniards” were the most enthusiastic. No one wondered how the Jews dared to play Lermontov in Yiddish.
– The performance was most successful in Leningrad, recalls Nehama Sirotina. – The poetic tragedy, written by 15-year-old Lermontov, was staged very rarely, although Lermontov was one of his favorite authors in Russia and in the USSR. The entire Leningrad intelligentsia, which, in my opinion, was more demanding and more sophisticated than the Moscow intelligentsia, went to the “Spaniards”. Kushnirov’s translation was excellent.Due to the fact that the Second World War broke out shortly after the premiere and the theater was evacuated to Uzbekistan, the performance did not last long. But the role of Noemie is so close to me that I remember all the monologues even after more than 40 years.
In 1983 in New York, producers Renee Raskin and Mel Kaiser, who were interested in the history of Jewish theater and culture in Yiddish, released Nehama Sirotina’s disc, I Have a Language). For the disc, a monologue of Noemi from “The Spaniards” was recorded, but this recording was not included in the final version.
Lermontov … Falk … Moscow … New York … The nineteenth, twentieth, twenty-first centuries … Everything is connected. Hamlet is wrong, the connection of times has not broken.
