About this product
- Description<i>Eugene Onegin</i> (1833) is a comedy of manners, written in exquisitely crafted verse, about two young members of the Russian gentry, the eponymous hero and the girl Tatyana, who don t quite connect. It is also the greatest masterpiece of Russian literature the source of the human archetypes and the attitudes that define and govern the towering fictional creations of nineteenth-century Russia and one of the most celebrated poems of the world. Before Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837) wrote <i>Eugene Onegin, </i> his nation s literature was a parochial one; after he wrote it, due in small part to its power and influence, the Russian tradition became one of the central traditions of Western civilization.
- Author BiographyAlexander Pushkin(1799-1837) was a poet, playwright, and novelist who achieved literary prominence before he was twenty. His radical politics led to government censorship and periods of banishment from the capital, but he eventually married a popular society beauty and became a regular part of court life. Notoriously touchy about his honor, he died at age thirty-seven in a duel with his wife's alleged lover.
