    DescriptionPaul Scofield, Simon Callow, Ralph Fiennes and Prunella Scales have given readings of Antony Wood's translations of Pushkin. This volume contains his translations of three celebrated long poems which have not been readily available in English: the ballad The Bridegroom, combining everyday life, nightmare, and the elements of a good whodunnit; Count Nulin, a delicious rural-life parody of Shakespeares Rape of Lucrece; andThe Tale of the Golden Cockerel, the eeriest of Pushkins verse fairytales.

    Review quote
    'These three narrative poems, so delightful to read in Russian, are for the first time a real pleasure to read in English too.' - John Bayley. 'Lively, funny, elgant and swift - all that I imagine Pushkin to be.' - Christopher Logue. 'One has that rare feeling of reading the thing itself.' - John Fuller.
