Eugene Onegin : a novel in verse by Aleksandr Sergeevich Pushkin( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eugene Onegin was Pushkin's own favourite work, and it shows him attempting to transform himself from romantic poet into realistic novelist. This new translation seeks to retain both the literal sense and the poetic music of the original, and capture the poem's spontaneity and wit. The introduction examines several ways of reading the novel, and the text is richly annotated
Boris Godunov and other dramatic works by Aleksandr Sergeevich Pushkin( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alexander Pushkin's dramatic work displays a scintillating variety of forms, from the historical to the metaphysical and folkloric. After Boris Godunov, they evolved into Pushkin's own unique, condensed transformations of Western European themes and traditions. The fearful amorality of A Scene from Faust is followed by the four Little Tragedies, which confront greed, envy, lust, and blasphemy, while Rusalka is a tragedy of a different kind--a lyric fairytale of despair and transformation. Here, James E. Falen's verse translations are accompanied by a first-rate introduction from Caryl Emerson, an equally distinguished Russianist, which emphasizes the cosmopolitan nature of Pushkin's drama, the position of Russian culture on the European stage, together with excellent analyses of the individual works in the volume. Falen's translations of Pushkin are widely admired and his OWC translation of Eugene Onegin is considered the best available. - Publisher

My sister life and the Zhivago poems by Boris Leonidovich Pasternak( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Boris Pasternak is best known in the West for his epic novel Doctor Zhivago, whereas in Russia he is most celebrated as a poet. The two poetry collections offered here in translation are chronological and thematic bookends, and they capture Pasternak's abiding and powerful vision of life: his sense of its beauty and terror, its precariousness for the individual, and its persistence in time - that vitality of being with which he is on familiar and familial terms."--Project Muse
