The quality of translation is amazing. The spirit of Pushkin's poetry (I an a native Russian speaker) is rendered with surprising accuracy, and so is the melody of the verses.

The problem with translating Pushkin, any Russian will tell you, is that he is a very musical poet and most English translations lose the music by being too literal.
Not so this collection, whose poems sing and fly with a distinctive 19th century flavor. I don't speak Russian but I am a poet and I recognize the artistry of the work here. The translator is fluent in rhyme and the poems are clear and well rendered. I will leave it for Russian scholars to determine the accuracy of the words.

Outstanding translation. The translator clearly proved that Great Russian poetry could sound great in English language. Thank you for building so meaningful bridge between these two cultures.

Format: Paperback
I absolutely love reading Russian poetry and studying the history thereof. Alexander Pushkin is no doubt an awesome poet, and of course one of my all time favorite. The problem that I face is that I don't speak (or consequently read) Russian, and so I therefore am very reliant on a good translator, and a creative one as well: Andrey Kneller is hands down both. His transliterations are creative, beautiful, concise, and beyond reproach! If you're an English speaker as I am, yet love Russian poetry, or want to read and learn about Russian poetry, I absolutely recommend you to pick up Andrey Kneller's translations!

More About the Author

Andrey Kneller is a Russian-born poet/translator. Andrey was 10 years old when his family immigrated from Moscow, Russia to New York in 1993. He grew up reading and speaking Russian fluently. At fourteen, he started writing his own poetry and not long after that, he started translating his favorite Russian poets into English. Understanding that Russian poets have been represented rather poorly in the west, the goal of translation for him has always been to keep as much of the original as possible, preserving meaning without losing rhyme and music. At the present, he has published 9 books of translations, including the works of Anna Akhmatova, Marina Tsvetaeva, and Vladimir Mayakovsky, among others, and Discernible Sound, a book of his own poetry. Andrey currently lives with his wife and daughter in Ashland, MA and works as a high school math teacher in Boston.
