    Great Translation

    This is the best translation of Pushkin's novel available in a mass market paperback in English. I taught a 19th century Russian literature course for several years and suffered through a couple of bad versions before I found this one. It's a novel in verse, but don't be thrown by that if you don't care for poetry. It reads quickly, and is one of the most entertaining novels written in any language--and you will find out why later Russian writers keep referring to Pushkin.

    Fascinating

    Fascinating I read this book after watching a movie on the story. One thing for sure is that James Falen did a perfect job on the translation of EUGENE ONEGIN. Much of the Russian nature of glows in this English translation, brining out the humor, wittiness, emotions, grief, sadness and vitality of the original story, which mirrored the Russian society at the time Pushkin lived. The lessons from the story are strong. Never fight against somebody who is not out to hurt you even if you feel he hurt your pride. That was the case between Eugene and his friend and neighbor Vladimir Lensky, which ends tragically over a nonexistent rivalry over Olga Larin: Another lesson is to appreciate the genuine and selfless love of others for, especially when we are lost in life. That was the case of Olga's sister Tatiana, whom Eugene initially rejects, only to fall in love with her later at a time when she had lost faith in him and had committed herself to a man she did not love but respected. Pushkin himself could be seen in the writing. The loss of what we did not know we loved is the overriding theme in this book. In this direction, there are many lessons to learn from Russia .We can see that in UNION MOUJIK, WAR AND PEACE.I enjoyed reading this book, so if you are undecided about reading it, pick it up and do yourself a favor by knowing about this great work of art.

    Extraordinary!!!

    While browsing the cable channels, I ran across the title 'Onegin' and immediately pronounced it 'one gin'. I tuned it to see what could be so interesting about 'one gin.' To my amazement, I not only mispronounced the name, but also become engrossed in the plot and theme of the movie. I was so enthralled by the content of the movie that I wanted to see more even after the movie had ended. Needless to say, I have recorded this movie for future viewing and added it to the top of my list of favorite movies. I plan to purchase the novel in the near future. To the author I give the highest honors. THANK YOU for such a wonderful, true-to-life story!!! :)

    Magnificent translation

    This is THE best translation I have come across! If you think of getting yourself a copy of 'Eugene Onegin' and you do not read Russian choose this translation.
