Barto (Барто) Agnya Lvovna
Poems for Children
Agnya Barto lived to see many of the main periods of Soviet literature. She herself showed an unchanging stability in her poetry for children. She was both the ideologically committed poet who wrote about current political and social questions, and the creator of lyrical portraits of children or scenes from the children's own world. If the former poems brought her many oficial rewards and a high position in Soviet cultural life, it is thanks to the latter that Barto gained a lasting place in children's literature.
