As Nabokov says of this line: I would like to thank the magnificence of this song with my simple words, and I feel immediately this will be a daunting task Tatyana, still brokenhearted by the loss of Onegin, is convinced by her parents to live with her aunt in Moscow in order to find a suitor.

And yet, despite the gargantuan effort, this novel reads so incredibly easy and effortlessly that it’s almost too easy to overlook its beauty sophistication under the deceiving cover-up of light simplicity.

In the last example Johnston nails it.

Eugene Onegin by Alexander Pushkin

Despite being written in the first half of the 19th C, Pushkin’s commentary about the superficial, alexandder nature of social interaction, the obsession with beauty over emotion, and the rigid framework of society’s expectations have more than a little relevance today.


May as well have been watching a black comedy about hipsters. At dawn no herdsmen are about, Bringing to pasture hungry cattle, At noon no horn is heard to sing And bring the cows into a ring.

Onegin, for example, says of the man he shot, in his letter to Tatiana late in the poem: My favorite stanza from the Eugene Memorablf is this: I always say I kind of prefer writing over plot.

Oh how I wished to join their races And catch her feet in my embraces!
