This is the widely acclaimed translation of Russian literature's most seminal work. Pushkin's "novel in verse" has influenced Russian prose as well as poetry for more than a century. By turns brilliant, entertaining, romantic and serious, it traces the development of a young Petersburg dandy as he deals with life and love. Influeneced by Byron, Pushkin reveals the nature of his heroes through the emotional colorations found in their witty remarks, nature descriptions, and unexpected actions, all conveyed in stanzas of sonnet length (a form which became known as the Onegin Stanza), faithfully reproduced by Walter Arndt inthis Bollingen Prize translation.

Review: Eugene Onegin, Vol. I (Text)

Avis d'utilisateur  - Kristina - Goodreads

Do yourself a huge favor and read the James E.Falen version of this story. I had this beloved writer's works read to me as a student in St. Petersburg. Back in America, I can tell you that nothing reads Pushkin as faithfully and as enjoyably as I felt it in Russia as Falen. Consulter l'avis complet

Can't help but think of Pale Fire (published two years prior to this translation) when reading Nabokov's notes. I imagine him grinning over his pages. Art imitating life imitating art imitating life...? Consulter l'avis complet

Pushi was born in Moscow. In 1817 he entered government service, but his liberalism caused him to exile to S Russia in 1820, until after the ascension of Nicholas I in 1826. Hailed in Russia as its greatest poet. He also wrote many lyrical poems, tales, and essays, and was appointed Russian histographer. His marriage to Nikolayevna Goncharova proved unhappy and led to his early death, defending his wife;s honour in a duel with her brother-in-law.

One of the twentieth century s master prose stylists, Vladimir Nabokov was born in St. Petersburg in 1899. He studied French and Russian literature at Trinity College, Cambridge, then lived in Berlin and Paris, where he launched a brilliant literary career. In 1940 he moved to the United States, and achieved renown as a novelist, poet, critic and translator. He taught literature at Wellesley, Stanford, Cornell, and Harvard. In 1961 he moved to Montreux, Switzerland, where he died in 1977.
