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

À propos de l'auteur (1990)

Aleksandr Sergeyevich Pushkin was a Russian author of the Romantic era who is considered by many to be the greatest Russian poet and the founder of modern Russian literature. Pushkin was born on June 6, 1799 in Moscow, Russia. He published his first poem at the age of 15. Gradually, he became committed to social reform and emerged as a spokesman for literary radicals; in the early 1820s he clashed with the government, which sent him into exile in southern Russia. While under the strict surveillance of government censors and unable to travel or publish at will, he wrote his most famous play, the drama Boris Godunov, but could not publish it until years later. Pushkin's other works include: Eugene Onegin (a novel in verse), The Bronze Horseman, The Stone Guest, and The Queen of Spades. Pushkin and his wife Natalya Goncharova, whom he married in 1831, became regulars of court society. She was very beautiful and there were many roumors of her infidelity. Pushkin challenged her alleged lover, his brother in-law Georges d'Anthès, to a duel which left both men injured, Pushkin mortally. He died two days later on February 10, 1837; he was 37 years old.

Vladimir Vladimirovich Nobokov was born April 22, 1899 in St. Petersburg, Russia to a wealthy family. He attended Trinity College, Cambridge. When he left Russia, he moved to Paris and eventually to the United States in 1940. He taught at Wellesley College and Cornell University. Nobokov is revered as one of the great American novelists of the 20th Century. Before he moved to the United States, he wrote under the pseudonym Vladimir Serin. Among those titles, were Mashenka, his first novel and Invitation to a Beheading. The first book he wrote in English was The Real Life of Sebastian Knight. He is best know for his work Lolita which was made into a movie in 1962. In addition to novels, he also wrote poetry and short stories. He was a finalist for the National Book Award for Fiction seven times, but never won it. Nabokov died July 2, 1977.
