In 1987 the Houghton Library observed the 150th anniversary of the death of Aleksandr Pushkin with an exhibition of materials drawn from the extraordinary Russian literature collection assembled by Bayard Kilgour. From this vast trove, curator John E. Malmstad chose some eighty items—books, letters, and manuscripts that illuminated Pushkin’s life, career, and the world of influences and rivals that shaped Russia’s most important literary voice.
