iflowers wrote:Pushkin is considered to be the father of Russian Literary Language. His best work (in my opinion) is Eugene Onegin. I like The Captain's Daughter, still I think it's valued mostly because it was a reflection of the historic period - a story about Yemelyan Pugachev who was pronounced an outlaw by the government. What Pushkin tried to show is that Yemelyan Pugachev was a human being and not the bloody murder as the government tried to paint him. He took from the rich and gave to the poor.
Whatever can be said about Russian history and politics with them, I will always have a big fascination for the people and their culture, and how they made such an impact culturally as well.
