  1. Thank you so much, I really appreciate it! Yes, I agree, and what’s not to like? Finland and the Finnish people are fantastic 🇫🇮 Of Course, I’m a bit biased 😉

  3. Thank you very much, Dave, I’m really excited about it! Yes, it’s an interesting subject. Of course Pushkin, having African and Swedish blood himself, was much more positive about foreigners than for instance Dostoevsky.

  4. I am stunned by the visuals: the two illustrations (of Pushkin and the beautiful winter scene) at the beginning of your post, Elisabeth. You have the most visually appealing literary site it seems I have ever seen. I haven’t even read it yet!

  5. “Yurko embodies the way in which Russia saw Finland: as a useful buffer between Russia and Sweden, the innocent bystander in Russia’s conflicts, and a potential ally in wartime, better as a friend than as an enemy.”

    This is a shrewd and clever insight, Elisabeth, and it is very well put or expressed.

  9. Congratulations Elisabeth – a brilliant and fascinating article. I really must find time for more Pushkin. I have two copies of E&O on my shelf, so no excuse not to! 🙂

  10. Thank you so much, Liz, for your wonderful comment! It means a lot to me. It’s very exciting to have my article on another blog 😊 So you have two copies of Eugene Onegin, as you say, no excuse 😉 I would recommend choosing the one that works the best for you, and use both copies for the notes. Happy reading 😊

  11. Elizabeth, what a brilliant article! Congrats. I have never noticed the different national stereotypes, but will certainly do so next time I read Pushkin. And I hope you’re loving Finland.

  13. Thank you, Elena, I’m glad you found it interesting! As a matter of fact, I am thinking about writing more about the literary Finland- Russia connections. You did mention Baratynsky before, but I have yet to read and investigate him. So there’s still plenty to discover 😊
