Eugene Onegin: A Novel in Verse
Penguin Books Limited, 4 sept. 2008 - 244 pages
Still the benchmark of Russian literature 175 years after its first publication--now in a marvelous new translation
Pushkin's incomparable poem has at its center a young Russian dandy much like Pushkin in his attitudes and habits. Eugene Onegin, bored with the triviality of everyday life, takes a trip to the countryside, where he encounters the young and passionate Tatyana. She falls in love with him but is cruelly rejected. Years later, Eugene Onegin sees the error of his ways, but fate is not on his side. A tragic story about love, innocence, and friendship, this beautifully written tale is a treasure for any fan of Russian literature.

Review: Eugene OneginAvis d'utilisateur - Mary Ronan Drew - Goodreads
Not for me. I gave up and returned the book to the library. Perhaps another time. My database tells me I read it about 35 years ago. I remember nothink. Consulter l'avis complet
