About this product
- DescriptionMikhail Lermontov (1814-1841) is best known to Anglophone readers as the author of A Hero of Our Time, whereas among Russian readers his poetry is equally cherished. Lermontov was of Scottish descent, and this bilingual volume celebrates his bicentenary with new translations by 14 translator-poets, mostly Scottish.
- Author BiographyMIKHAIL LERMONTOV (1814 - 41) is best known to anglophone readers as the author of A Hero of Our Time. Bursting into print with an impassioned poem on the death of Pushkin, he continued to attract unfavourable attention from the authorities while enjoying a high reputation in literary circles and beyond. Having served in the Caucasus, and taken part in dangerous engagements against the Chechens, like Pushkin he died in a duel of dubious legality. PETER FRANCE is Professor Emeritus at Edinburgh University, an eminent scholar and translator of modern Russian poetry. He is joint general editor, with Stuart Gillespie, of the five-volume Oxford History of Literary Translation in English. ROBYN MARSACK is Director of the Scottish Poetry Library. She has co-edited Oxford Poets 2013: An Anthology (2013), Twenty Contemporary New Zealand Poets (2009) and Intimate Expanses: XXV Scottish Poems 1978 - 2002 (2004).
