In its adventurous happenings its abductions, duels, and sexual intrigues "A Hero of Our Time" looks backward to the tales of Sir Walter Scott and Lord Byron, so beloved by Russian society in the 1820s and 30s. In the character of its protagonist, Pechorin the archetypal Russian antihero Lermontov s novel looks forward to the subsequent glories of a Russian literature that it helped, in great measure, to make possible. This edition includes a Translator s Foreword by Vladimir Nabokov, who translated the novel in collaboration with his son, Dmitri Nabokov. (Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)"
