From the Back Cover

Available for the first time in an edition of two individual paperback books, Volume I contains Nabokov's introduction and his translation of Pushkin's novel, and Volume 2 contains his commentary and an index.

This portion of the two novels, is commentary and annotation of the prose poem by Vladamir Nabokov. It is the most complete
commentary of the work ever.

I'm a Russian Language and Literature major in Yonsei Univ. in Korea. Having lived in Moscow for around 3 years, I'd heard there a lot about Pushkin and read many of his famous works. The most prestigious of his, however, must be "Onegin." It's a great mixture of verse and prose in its form. If possible, try to read this in Russian, as well. This long poetical prose was written for 8 years and the ending rhyme perfectly matches for the entire line until the very end. Compared to others, it is definitely a conspicuous and brilliant one. "Onegin" can be the author himself or yourself. The love between Onegin and TaTyana is neither the cheap kind of love that often appears in any books nor the tragic one that is intended to squeze your tears. As a literature, this book covers not only love between passionate youth, but also a large range of literary works in it, which can tell us about the contemporary literature current and its atmosphere. Calling Onegin "My friend", Pushkin, the author, shows the probability and likelihood of the work. Finally, I'm just sorry that the title has been changed into English. The original name must be "Yevgeni Onegin(¬¦¬Ó¬Ô¬Ö¬ß¬Ú¬Û ¬°¬ß¬Ö¬Ô¬Ú¬ß)." If you are a literature major or intersted in it, I'd like to recommand you read this. You can't help but loving the two lovers and may reread it, especially the two correspondences through a long period of time. Only with readng this book, you'll also learn a huge area of the contemporary literature of the 19th century from the books mentioned in "Onegin" that take part as its subtext. Enjoy yourself!

This book is the ideal companion to any translation of Onegin. Nabokov is at his best with his great narrations and digressions. Ideal for lovers of Russian literature often considered untranslatable. Necessary to the better comprehension of Pushkin masterpiece. .Just refuse to be turned off by the size (over 1000 pages) and brick weight of this important book.

Even though I had read Eugene Onegin several times it had always been by the proverbial seat of my pants. But when my reading group decided to delve into this classic I decided it was a good time to get some more info and background on it.
McNab did not disappoint. He filled in a number of holes that would have been difficult for us to have figured out. I certainly didn't read all of it but I dug in whenever I (or we) had a question. It was pretty helpful and, as expected, interesting.
