Overview

One of the many aspects of Alexander Pushkin’s immense contribution to Russian language and literature, and perhaps the one he is most popular for, is his mastery of the love poem, a genre which he perfected like few others before or after him. This volume contains a selection of his most famous and enduring verse explorations of love, such as ‘I Loved You’, ‘Night’ and ‘I Well Recall a Wondrous Meeting’, pieces which are crowning achievements of the European canon and still have the same timeless emotional resonance today.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"When asked for a handful of poetic geniuses of my heart and choice, I would never omit Pushkin’s name." - Thomas Mann

"Clarke’s principle of organization well serves readers who are not familiar enough with Pushkin’s oeuvre to select love lyrics from among hundreds of poems arranged solely according to year of composition." - Pushkin Review, the Journal of the International Pushkin Society

ROGER CLARKE is best known as a film-writer for the Independent newspaper and more recently Sight & Sound.

He was the youngest person ever to join the Society for Psychical Research in the 1980s and was getting his ghost stories published by The Pan & Fontana series of horror books at just 15, when Roald Dahl asked his agent to take him on as a client. He is the author of Ghosts: True Stories.
