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.
Alexander Pushkin (1799–1837) was a dramatist and poet, penning such influential works as Eugene Onegin and Boris Godunov. He is now considered the father of modern Russian literature.
