Anna Akhmatova

Acclaimed for her emotional poems that offered insight into life in Stalinist and World War II Russia—including the famous Requiem—Anna Akhmatova is remembered as one of the most important poets of 20th-century Russia and was twice-nominated for the Nobel Prize. She lived in the Fountain House, which belonged to her late husband, art historian Nikolai Punin, until her death in 1966.
