Translated from the Russian.

A wide-ranging new selection of the lyric and narrative verse of Russia's greatest poet Alexander Pushkin established what we know as Russian literature.

This collection includes his strongly personal lyric verse, which springs spontaneously from his everyday life - his numerous loves, his exile, his hectic life in St Petersburg - while the narrative poems here, from exotic Southern tales to comic parodies and fairy tales of enchanted tsars, display his endless ability to surprise.

His landmark work The Bronze Horseman, with its ghostly central figure of Peter the Great, holds the meaning of all Russian history.

Antony Wood's translations reveal the variety, inventiveness and perfection of Pushkin's verse. Translated with an introduction and notes by Antony Wood
