Boris Leonidovich Pasternak (1890 â€“ 1960) was a Russian poet, writer best known in the West for his epic novel Doctor Zhivago, a tragedy whose events span the last period of Czarist Russia and the early days of the Soviet Union, and first published in Italy (in translation) in 1957. It is as a poet, however, that he is most celebrated in Russia. My Sister Life, written by Pasternak in 1917, is arguably the most influential collection of poetry published in Russian in the 20th century.
