Description

Pushkin on Literature approaches Pushkin's literary accomplishment from a unique perspective: it focuses on Pushkin the critic and on his passion-are enthusiasm, volatile judgments, joy, frustration and fascination with the literary world that surrounded him. This is the only English-language edition of the complete set of Pushkin's critical writing, both on his own work and on the wide range of European literature - Byron, Shakespeare, Voltaire, Milton - which he read and studied, and which so profoundly influenced his own writing, is organized into sections, each featuring a biographical survey of Pushkin's activities during the period covered. These extracts from Pushkin's letters, articles, and working notes provide a complete chronological record of the artist's literary evolution and provide a fascinating glimpse into the poet's intellectual passions.
