Portraits Without Frames - Лев Озеров

The free verse poems do seem to do what the title of the book suggests - draw a portrait of the various artists, authors, poets, dancers and so on without using paint.  I would have enjoyed it more if I knew who more of the artists were.  I also wish there had been a bit more historical notes - considering how many of those dealt with were killed on Night of the Murdered Poets maybe explaining that event say.
