      All in all a nice fairy tale, written in a poem form BUT the vocabulary killed me I didn t expect it to find it so hard.

      I read the English translation while listening to a Russian reader read it aloud on an audiobook Pushkin s verse continues to astound me with its easy flow Listening to a Russian read the original turns the experience into nothing short of magic As a Finn, I found it amusing that the Finnish wizard plays such a crucial role in the story and saves the beleaguered Kiev from the barbaric Pechenegs by bringing the protagonist Ruslan back to life at the end of the story The Finnish wizard is to Rusla [...]

      On seashore far a green oak towers,And to it with a gold chain bound,A learned cat whiles away the hoursBy walking slowly round and round.To right he walks, and sings a ditty To left he walks, and tells a tale , .Masterpiece I grow up listening to this poem and watching movie youtube movie v 2UoO2t with English subtitles

      Part Odyssey, part 1,001 Nights, part Russian folktale all awesome Seriously, Pushkin is a genius I will now add him to my list of favorite authors and commence the digital stalking.

      I used to think that this was a lovely fairy tale, but then I met a Pushkin scholar who told me that this is actually a story of sexual perversion with major homo erotic undertones I like it much better now.

      A nice short story in verse filled with magic, heroes, battles and love Whats not to love about it

    11. Marc Gerstein on said:

      I ve heard this characterized as a fairy tale or a children s story and I can see where it has a ton of appeal on that basis And, we know, Glinka thought it had enough adult reach to have written an opera based on it and movie adaptations followed But beyond all that, I think this is an incredible and important literary work in and of itself.It can always be debated whether a work of literature is best appreciated by focusing entirely on the work standing on its own, versus reading it with a ful [...]

    12. Mike on said:

      I ve never been had as much enthusiasm for epic poetry as I have for prose, but Pushkin s narrative poetry is simply a joy to read This is the poem that sparked modern Russian literature, much in the same way Goethe s Werther did for German literature The tale is enchanting, the language is gorgeous, and allusions to both Russian folklore and classic hero myth provide a perfect fusion makes this poem feel both ancient and new To think that Pushkin wrote this in his late teens is remarkable.

    13. B on said:

      Amazing publication of a foundational title in Russian literature Side by side English and Russian text, which is tremendously helpful for bilingual readers Bizarrely, there were two sets of endnotes not quite sure why they couldn t have been combined or presented better to be helpful.

      La verdad es que esperaba otro final, pero est bastante bien y en general supero mis expectativas Lo recomiendo para leer en un momento libre a quienes gusten de los cuentos y la fantas a pica.

      Ironisch episch gedicht waarin in zes zangen het sprookje verteld wordt van de mooie Ljoedmila die op haar bruiloft met Roeslan ontvoerd wordt door de tovenaar dwerg Tsjernomor Roeslan trekt er met drie rivalen op uit om haar te gaan zoekenRoeslan en Ljoedmila is een sprookje in de beste Russische traditie, maar Poesjkin lijkt weinig serieus in zijn eigen vertelling Hij kan levendig schrijven en zijn po zie swingt Poesjkin schrijft in de tegenwoordige tijd, waarmee hij de lezer soms goed een sce [...]

      Didn t really do it for me It meanders too much, but at the same time some scenes just don t get enough attention So they just forgive Fralf Is he at least banished And what about Naina the witch Presumably she still hates the Finn wizard She probably doesn t really care about Ruslan, but if he s the Finn s chosen, wouldn t she want some revenge As for Chernoy just let him live in the castle Beards do grow backunless that s part of the magic of the sword, and it won t grow back Even without his [...]

      Od svih Pu kinovih dela, ova poemi ica me je jedina razo arala U pore enju sa ostatkom njegovog stvarala tva, deluje mi na naivnu pri icu dobra i zla Jedna zvezdica je mo da stroga ocena sa moje strane, ali svakako treba uzeti kao olak avaju u okolnost to da je ovu poemu Pu kin pisao dok je bio tinejd er.

      I love Kochergin s illustrations, specially black and white ones the colour ones seem to be a tiny bit blurry , but that could be because the edition I had in my childhood was illustrated by him as well.

      This is absolutely fantastic on all levels.All I wanna know is who still can recite the entire laundry list of fables that is the opening piece comeon, you know you hadda memorize it in 2nd grade

    21. Brittany on said:

      Really 2.5 stars The work wanders off topic several times to the detriment of the story though, according to the information available about Pushkin, the piece provides great insight to his life at the time and at the time of the republication.

      Mainly important to me as the source of Glinka sintricate and colorful opera.
