"Eugene Onegin" is the master work of the poet whom Russians regard as the fountain head of their literature.
Set in 1820s Russia, Pushkin's verse novel follows the fates of three men and three women.
Engaging, full of suspense, and varied in tone, it contains a large cast of characters and offers the reader many literary, philosophical, and autobiographical digressions, often in a highly satirical vein. "Eugene Onegin" was Pushkin's own favorite work, and this new translation by Stanley Mutchell conveys the literal sense and the poetic music of the original.
