The Last Days of Pushkin from Unpublished Contemporary Letters by Irakly Andronikov
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Soviet Literary critics are still unable to state with conviction that the story of the death of the great Russian poet Pushkin has been adequately studied. And so the new material as to Pushkin's death contained in the letters of contemporaries, letters quite unknown for a hundred years, sent from the town of Nizhni Tagil to the Moscow journal Novy Mir, are of the utmost interest, both for literary critics, and the general reader. The Last Days of Pushkin is a presentation of this material with a running commentary by the well-known writer and literary critic Irakly Andronikov. "Dear Andryusha, I write to you with eyes filled with tears, and a heart filled with grief and sorrow; the divine star has set, Russia has lost Pushkin. He fought a duel with d'Anths on Wednesday, and d'Anths through his body; immortal Pushkin lived for two days, and yesterday, Friday, departed this life; I had the bitter joy of bidding him farewell on Thursday; he wished it himself." - Letter from Madame Karamzina, recently discovered in the town of Nizhni Tagil
