A short yet fascinating account of Russia’s most celebrated writer.

In Robert Chandler’s exquisite biography, literary giant Alexander Pushkin, lauded as the Russian Shakespeare, is examined as writer, lover and public figure. Chandler explores his relationship to politics and provides a fascinating glimpse of the turbulent history Pushkin lived through. The book acts as a succinct guide to anybody trying to understand Russia’s most celebrated literary figure and also illuminates the wider historical and political context of early nineteenth-century Russia.

A well-researched and in depth account presented in a succinct and easy to read manner.

A lucid and entertaining biography of one of the best-known Russian writers.

Translated from Russian by acclaimed and prize-winning translator Robert Chandler.

Likely to be widely reviewed due to current interest in Russian literature and the weight carried by the name of Pushkin.
