the alexander pushkin home page



Some scholars say that Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin singlehandedly created modern Russian literature. Others say that his work is more adored there than that of Shakespeare is here. Whichever it is, his work tackles everything: from the ennui of an aristocratic life to the simple joys of the common people of his beloved Russia.

All the works are in translation, and translators' initials are after each piece. For source information, see the bibliography.
