Eugene Onegin is a Russian tale of love and tragedy. Told only in pure verse and rhyme, the reader follows the story of Eugene Onegin and his lover, Tattiana. Yes, I enjoyed the story greatly. What a read! To follow the lives of these characters through poetry, to learn their deepest feelings, tortured thoughts, and highest ecstasies -- written out not in typical prose, but in a way that tingles the soul. This novel has certainly intrigued me. I'd love to tackle another story in verse again one day. "Happy he who in youth was young Happy who timely grew mature, He who life's frosts which early wrung Hath gradually learnt to endure...." (Stanza X, Canto VIII)
