A selection of the very finest love poems from the master of the genre, in a lavishly produced edition
"The wondrous moment of our meeting . . .
I well remember you appear
Before me like a vision fleeting,
A beauty's angel pure and clear."
One of the many aspects of Alexander Pushkin's immense contribution to Russian language and literature, and perhaps the one he is most popular for, is his mastery of the love poem, a genre which he perfected like few others before or after him. This volume contains a selection of his most famous and enduring verse explorations of love, such as "I Loved You," "Night," and "A Magic Moment I Remember," pieces which are crowning achievements of the European canon and still have the same timeless emotional resonance today.
