Pushkin

(2002)
A Biography
A non fiction book by

 
In the course of his short, dramatic life, Aleksandr Pushkin gave Russia not only its greatest poetry - including the novel-in-verse Eugene Onegin - but a new literary language. He also gave it a figure of enduring romantic allure - fiery, restless, extravagant, a prodigal gambler and inveterate seducer of women. Having forged a dazzling, controversial career that cost him the enmity of one tsar and won him the patronage of another, he died at the age of thirty-eight, following a duel with a French officer who was paying unscrupulous attention to his wife.
In his magnificent, prizewinning Pushkin, T. J. Binyon lifts the veil of the iconic poet's myth to reveal the complexity and pathos of his life while brilliantly evoking Russia in all its nineteenth-century splendor. Combining exemplary scholarship with the pace and detail of a great novel, Pushkin elevates biography to a work of art.
