Boris Godunov is the most fascinating and problematic of all of Pushkin's texts. The story of The Uncensored Boris Godunov is really a kind of detective novel: why the earlier draft has not been preferred by Pushkin scholars, why perhaps it should be, and how history proper and literary history in particular have clouded the issue of what could have been the definitive text.
