Über Deutschland

On Germany

The 17-year-old Russian Marina Tsvetaeva spends the summer of 1910 in the sanatorium town of Loschwitz near Dresden. In 1919, in the Russia of wartime communism, she recalls this time and overlays it with a praise of German culture. She is on the verge of becoming one of the most important writers of the 20th century.
