Hero of Our Time
"It's high time an up-to-date and idiomatic version of "A Hero of Our Time "was made available to American readers. Marion Schwartz's translation of Lermontov's classic adventure novel captures all the suppleness and wit of Lermontov's prose, the fine texture of his descriptions and the galloping rhythm of his narrative passages. This is a fine addition to the Modern Library." -- Michael Scammell "Military life in the Caucasus, bandits, duels, romance--at the hands of a passionate adventurer with "a restless imagination, an insatiable heart. That is Pechorin, and also Lermontov. If you have a personal all-time bestseller list, make room for "A Hero of our Time," "-- Alan Furst "In Russia Mikhail Lermontov is considered one of the greatest writers of the nineteenth century. Marian Schwarz's compelling translation shows us why." --Peter ConstantineIn Russia Mikhail Lermontov is considered one of the greatest writers of the nineteenth century.
