Alexander PushkinStreaming Video - 2005
Arguably Russia's greatest poet, Alexander Pushkin established a literary tradition that was fully European yet distinctively Russian in character. This program tells the tale of a brief life that was itself worthy of fiction. Incorporating footage of Pushkin's lodgings, accoutrements, and environs as well as period artwork and architecture, it follows Pushkin from the Imperial Lyceum at Tsarskoye Selo, where his literary career began, to the field of honor where, in a duel at age 38, it was cut short. A fine introduction to the author of Ruslan and Ludmila, Eugene Onegin, and Boris Godunov.
