About the Author

Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837), known as the father of Russian literature, was descended from Russian nobility and from an African great-grandfather raised at the court of Peter the Great. His commitment to social reform resulted in government censorship of his work and a period of exile. He died after fighting a duel at the age of thirty-seven.

Reviews


Pushkin's masterpiece Eugene Onegin: A Novel in Verse tells the intersecting stories of three men and three women in the Russia of the 1820s, showcasing its author's wit and intelligence throughout his engaging and suspenseful narrative. Russian-language purists argue that this classic should be read only in its original tongue, but this sparkling translation by James E. Falen is the next best thing.
