Here is presented the best available Russian text of Pushkin’s famous verse novel, together with—in English—a detailed commentary and thorough evaluation of its influence on Pushkin’s contemporaries and on later Russian literature. This edition of a classical epic work of Slavic literature (the basis and inspiration for the Tchaikovsky opera) is the first of a projected series of edited texts in Russian.

Designed to meet both the needs of modern scholars and the requirements of university courses, this edition can be used from the second year on. The author’s commentary is the fullest treatment yet published.

Who We Might Have Been, and Who We Will Become

Who among us hasn’t considered what our lives would be like if we had taken alternate paths, made different decisions? Storytellers of every stripe write of the lives we didn’t have, says Andrew H. Miller, author of On Not Being Someone Else: Tales of Our Unled Lives. As we live through a worldwide pandemic, the ideas of what might have been are even more appealing. Much like the adolescents on the verge of adulthood in Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People, Miller tells us, we wait to see what comes next.
