Product Description
 
Pushkin's The Bronze Horseman is the most famous poem in Russian literature after his Eugene Onegin, and notoriously difficult to translate. This new translation, described by Robert Chandler as 'truly wonderful', is accompanied here by Pushkin's greatest shorter verses. They range from lyric poetry to narrative verse, the latter based on traditional Russian stories of enchanted tsars and magical fish. Together, they show the dazzling range and achievement of Russia's greatest poet.Pushkin's The Bronze Horseman is the most famous poem in Russian literature after his Eugene Onegin, and notoriously difficult to translate.

Alexander Pushkin was born in Moscow in 1799. He was exiled for his liberal views on serfdom and autocracy, but this allowed him the freedom to write some of his greatest works, including the novel in verse Eugene Onegin. He died in 1837 after being fatally wounded in a duel.

Antony Wood is an editor and translator from Russian and German, and also runs the publishing house Angel Books.
