About the Author

Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837) is considered Russia's greatest poet and the founder of modern Russian literature. His novel The Captain's Daughter is available from NYRB Classics. Robert Chandler has translated many NYRB Classics, including Vasily Grossman's Life and Fate and Stalingrad, as well as Andrey Platonov's Soul and The Foundation Pit. Boris Dralyuk's most recent translations include Leo Tolstoy's Lives and Deaths and Andrey Kurkov's Grey Bees. He is a translator of Maxim Osipov's Rock, Paper, Scissors and Other Stories and Lev Ozerov's Portraits Without Frames, both published by NYRB Classics.


"Pushkin is everywhere." -Elif Batuman

"The challenges of translating Pushkin are well known, and they have seldom met with such sure hands as those of Robert Chandler and Elizabeth Chandler." -Judges of the MLA Lois Roth Translation Prize on The Captain's Daughter

As a bonus to this fine translation of 'Dubrovsky,' Robert Chandler includes 'Egyptian Nights,' Pushkin's original mix of prose and verse. . . . Chandler shows that he is as gifted at translating verse as he is with prose." -Donald Rayfield
