Description

James E. Falen's verse translation consists of Boris Godunov, A Scene from Faust, the four Little Tragedies and Rusalka. It is accompanied by a penetrating Introduction by Caryl Emerson on Russia's most cosmopolitan playwright.

  • This is the only edition to combine Pushkin's most famous play, Boris Godunov with The Little Tragedies, Rusalka and A Scene from Faust and is the most comprehensive edition of Pushkin's dramatic works.
  • James E. Falen's translations of Pushkin are widely admired and his OWC translation of Eugene Onegin is considered the best.
  • Falen's verse translations are accompanied by a first-rate introduction from Caryl Emerson, an equally distinguished Russianist, which emphasizes the cosmopolitan nature of Pushkin's drama, the position of Russian culture on the European stage, together with excellent analyses of the individual works in the volume.
  • The edition displays all aspects of Pushkin's dramatic genius: historical, metaphysical, and folklorist.
  • Musorgsky's opera, based on Boris Godunov, is frequently performed.
