    One thought on “Pushkin: A Biography”

    1. The best biography I have ever read, totally absorbing Pushkin was always falling in and out of love.His most famous lyric I loved you love still, perhaps,Is not quite extinguished in my soul But let it no longer alarm you I do not want to distress you in any way.I loved you silently, hopelessly,Tortured now by shyness, now by jealousy I loved you so sincerely, so tenderly,May God grant you be so loved by another.Another of my favourites is quoted in the book What good is my name to you It will [...]

    2. How can you not love Pushkin He s funny, impish, incredibly ugly but still a lady s man Had kick ass Wolverine sideburns that you can practically feel if you rub your hand over this book s cover portrait And this isn t even considering the fact that he singlehandedly founded Russian literature and shaped its direction for the next 150 years Like Calvino s old writer, he seems to literally grow masterpieces, the way a vine grows melons Binyon s biography is focused, sometimes annoyingly, but it t [...]

    3. Not a Life and Works or a critical biography, so not a good choice if you want to know details about Pushkin s work and its relation to the world in any detailed way, but an absorbing portrait of early nineteenth century literary Russia as it circled around Pushkin Pushkin himself was impulsive, extravagant, reckless, often self destructive he had a knack for saying and doing exactly the things that would make his life difficult, and he was utterly unable to handle money while at the same time [...]

    4. when looking at used copies of this book online, one of the descriptions of the condition was may be shiny what the hell

    5. PUSHKIN, A Biography 2003 T J Binyon .This is a well researched and meticulously detailed biography of the famous Russian writer It is most definitely a slow read The life of Pushkin is covered from the history of his family through to his death by duel I was not aware of the sort of life led by the writer His early works primarily his poems seemed to be written on the spur of the moment, and mostly acted as clever insults of his rivals or enemies His use of language was certainly from the class [...]

    6. An excellent biography of the Shakespeare of Russian literature There is detail here than you need if you have only a passing interest, but if you really enjoy Russian literature a comprehensive understanding of who Pushkin really was will enhance your enjoyment immeasurably.

    7. Very detailed biography of Russia s greatest poet A good read for anyone interested in the colorful life of A.S Pushkin.

    8. This was a good book, but not for the casual reader with just a passing interest It was well researched with lots information about people just barely connected to Pushkin.

    9. The depth of research in this biography was impressive Binyon does a good job navigating all the correspondence among Pushkin and those who knew him He also got an impressive handle on the desperate financial situation the poet faced I was struck not only the tragedy of a life cut short, but by the way that even while Pushkin was living he could not find the right circumstances to be as productive a writer as he could have been.

    10. Got as far as the Decemberist revolt It may be that right now I m simply not in the mood for the investigative hair splitting of literary biography this week I started Savigneau s life of Yourcenar and chucked it after two chapters but I also suspect that Binyon lacks a style For another time.

    11. Read through about 35% of this book and realized it was much too in depth for my purposes If you are interested in the details of Pushkin s encounters, his letters, and all the other minutiae of the poet s life, this book is ideal T.J Pinyon does an outstanding job of gathering the relevant resources to give the reader a sense of Pushkin s character.

    12. Well researched and interestingly written Lots of details of Pushkin s life, sometimes a little too much The author chose to focus on the poet s life only, so there is little evaluation of this literary giant as a creative artist.
