Product Description

Translated by Walter Arndt

This is the widely acclaimed translation of one of the outstanding and seminal works of Russian literature. 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 yound Petersburg dandy as he deals with life and love. Influenced by Byron, Pushkin reveals the nature of his heroes through the emotional colorations found in their witty remarks, nature descriptions, and unexcepted actions, all conveyed in stanzas fo sonnet length (a form which became known as the Onegin Stanza), faithfully reproduced by Walter Arndt in this Bollingen Prize translation.

This edition also includes an extensive introduction, notes and four essays on the poem.
