I loved Kinnell’s Villon, Millay’s Baudelaire, among others, and was disappointed by two different versions of Tsvetava. Judge whose fault this is: Yevgeny Onegin by Alexander Pushkin is a Russian masterpiece of literature.

Oh, Russia, family, society, unrequited love, that s Wonderful! The world of books is a rewarding world that I’ll never leave behind, but the one I see out there, is the only one I can truly experience, inhabited by people that can actually answer my questions, soothe my pain and be happy because of my own happiness.
