Podvig & Slava
Podvigi (feats) are famously mentioned by Blok in the opening line of the
first poem in his cycle Vozmezdie ("Retribution," 1908-13):

O doblestyakh, o podvigakh, o slave.

About valours, about feats, about fame.

Slava ("Fame," 1942) is a poem by VN. In Russian slava means "fame" and
"glory." Glory is the English title of VN's novel Podvig (1932).
