a robust love tale set within the class-conscious Tsarist Russia of the early nineteenth century. It embraces each point of that society – serf, provincial, aristocrat – in verse that's by way of turns attractive, witty, wickedly perceptive and continuously readable. this can be crucial analyzing for a person with a love of Russian literature, simply because this can be the place all of it all started. there's little pre-history to that golden age of nineteenth century novels. Lomonosov, a fisherman’s son became student, took church Slavonic, peasant Russian, jumbled in a number of ‘Loan translations’ and gave a French-speaking aristocracy a literary language; Pushkin was once the 1st really nice poet to exploit it; Yevgeny Onegin is his maximum paintings.
