Otherwise, it omitted useful points: Refresh and try again. The merchant’s up, the pedlar scurries, With jug in hand the milkmaid hurries, Crackling the freshly fallen snow; The cabby plods to hackney row. Get it and relish puahkin the End of the World, which I hear is just around the corner.

Eugene Onegin by Alexander Pushkin

This is my first Alexander Pushkin. Perhaps almost as brilliant as the novel itself is the explanation of the translations. In the last example Alexandeg nails it. As if the pistol fired itself.

This works well in Russian, it feels fairly easy even natural achieving a light and classical tone. I later asked a Russian friend about the book and she said it pusbkin magnificent, but never read it in English. Paved highways, linking every side, Memorabel cross our Russia far and wide; Above our waters iron bridges Will stride in broadly arching sweep; We’ll dig bold tunnels ‘neath the deep And even part whole mountain ridges; And Christendom will institute An inn at every stage en route.

He kinda took this story and said what if, at a crucial moment, things memoravle gone differently? I found the list of Mitchell’s rhymes more pleasing to the ear, less pat, than many of those Briggs uses, so perhaps I’d still prefer his version. In fact, line after line, i felt how it was stirring something deep in my heart and if it would be immensely dramatic to say that it resembled the story of my life, to an extent its true.


Years later, Onegin sees the now extraordinarily dsiparo Tatiana at a society ball in St. Ultimately, I have attempted to provide the English-speaking reader of today with a more accessible version of one of the great works of the Russian literary imagination, one that would speak in a familiar, pushkn English voice and that would convey not only something of the novel’s sense and shape, but some hints of its characteristic flavour as well: The current second volume of Nabokov presents me,orable commentary plus pages memroable an index.

The poem’s namesake is a young man which I infer had been a playboy in the upper-crust of Russian society, but who had become bored with the vapidness of it all and retired to the country, a recently turned misanthrope, where he becomes the heroic romantic obsession of a naive young girl named Tatyana.

I wonder – is it a coincidence that my brother and I have the names of Alexander Pushkin and his wife Natalie?

What shocked me the most is that I couldn’t mock it in any way! The endless evening Will somehow pass, tomorrow too.

So basically what I see here is the meeting of two people both dispro whom are instinctively and therefore very sincerely playing the exact roles society and culture expect them to play – the world-weary Evgeniy and the romantically passionate Tatyana. It also makes a tough challenge for a translator, and for a long time Onegin was considered untranslatable.

I’ve not read enough classic English poetry lately to be confident in comparing the quality – for oushkin, with Byron, one of Pushkin’s pushhkin, and whose verse forms Briggs hoped to emulate – but I have included ample quotes, so you may be able to make up your mind whether Briggs’ translation is for you, if you wanted to read Onegin in the first place.


Out come the pistols how they dazzle!

Eugene Onegin

Want to Read saving…. Guillot can just be glimpsed Lurking behind a stump, much worried. While the prose offers it’s own challenges to the translator it gives more of a sense in English of Pushkin’s lasting influence, skill and subtly than the poetry. I only read the commentary on the Eighth Chapter, which I had decided to focus on in my review, and by chance it is where Nabokov vents his spleen on other translations.

Born in Moscow, Pushkin published his first poem at the age of fifteen, and was widely recognized by the literary establishment by the time of his graduation from the Imperial Lyceum in Tsarskoe Selo.

Tatiana, at the time rather plain, confesses her love for Eugene in a letter. And even Tatyana’s ultimate rejection of Onegin may not be so much the strength of her character as the expected behavior of a woman in such a situation as portrayed in the romance novels with which she grew up the alternative to Tatyana’s decision decades later was described by Tolstoy in ‘Anna Karenina’ with all the tragic consequences that followed.

His response, which is really a very flattering rejection, is also honest and caring, warning her about being aware of the risk of being too open with strangers as she may get hurt.

I used to know a dude like that. After the death of this uncle, he inherited his land and moved to the country.
