Publisher's Summary

Evgenii Onegin is best known in the West through Tchaikovsky’s opera Eugene Onegin. But the original narrative poem (consisting of 389 stanzas, the form of which has become known as the "Pushkin sonnet") is one of the landmarks of Russian literature.
In the poem, the eponymous hero repudiates love, only to later experience the pain of rejection himself. Pushkin’s unique style proves timeless in its exploration of love, life, passion, jealousy, and the consequences of social convention.
This is the first time the work has appeared in audiobook form and is part of Naxos AudioBooks' intention to make the major European literary works available on audio.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
