I began by reading all of Pushkin’s poetry. Then, painstakingly, I went through his body of work again, teasing out brief passages that had some relevance to what I was trying to say in each section of LETTERS FROM RIFKA. The selection process took weeks of intense concentration. I hope some of my readers will go on to read Alexander Pushkin’s work on their own.
