Product Details

Praise

“It is not enough to say that Gannibal’s great-grandson became a poet, even a great poet. Pushkin, it is often claimed, invented the Russian literary language itself.” —Jennifer Wilson, New York Review of Books

“Pushkin is everywhere.” —Elif Batuman

“The challenges of translating Pushkin are well known, and they have seldom met with such sure hands as those of Robert Chandler and Elizabeth Chandler.” —Judges of the MLA Lois Roth Translation Prize on The Captain’s Daughter

As a bonus to this fine translation of ‘Dubrovsky,’ Robert Chandler includes ‘Egyptian Nights,’ Pushkin’s original mix of prose and verse. . . . Chandler shows that he is as gifted at translating verse as he is with prose.” —Donald Rayfield
