"Eugene Onegin" is the master work of the poet whom Russians regard as the fountainhead of their literature. Set in 1820s imperial Russia, Pushkin's novel in verse follows the emotions and destiny of three men - Onegin the bored fop, Lensky the minor elegiast, and a stylized Pushkin himself - and the fates and affections of three women - Tatyana the provincial beauty, her sister Olga, and Pushkin's mercurial Muse. Engaging, full of suspense, and varied in tone, it also portrays a large cast of other characters and offers the reader many literary, philosophical, and autobiographical digressions, often in a highly satirical vein. Pushkin's own favourite work, Eugene Onegin shows him attempting to transform himself from romantic poet into realistic novelist. This edition includes: introduction; textual note; bibliography chronology; appendix; explanatory notes. Translated with an introduction and notes by James E. Falen.
