Ice and Flame': Aleksandr Pushkin's Eugene Onegin In the canon of Russian literature, few works have been as controversial, or as influential, as Pushkin's.

I would like to thank the editors of Canadian Slavonic Papers and the Russian Language Journal, for their kind permission to quote extensively from two of my articles on Onegin published in their journals Gb and Introduction If there is one work which has above all others the key role in the formation of Russian literature as we know it, then it is surely Aleksandr Pushkin's Eugene Onegin.
In it the reader recognizes for the first time in the evolution of the literature those features which were to typify the Russian novel.
What is more, Russians have generally recognized Pushkin as the greatest poet and even the greatest writer their country has produced, an accolade which is by no means inconsiderable. In Russia a vast amount of scholarship has been devoted to the researching and analysis of Pushkin's work, his life, and his role in the development of Russian literature.
This effort continues undiminished today. This may be surprising to the Western reader who, although he has heard of Pushkin, is generally unlikely to have read much of his work, and may be disinclined to consider him on the same level as Tolstoi or Dostoevskii. It is more so when one realizes to what extent he is an exception in Russian literature. This difference is widely commented upon, but perhaps never better expressed than in the words of lurii Zhivago: What I have come to like best in the whole of Russian literature is the childlike Russian quality of Pushkin and Chekhov, their shy unconcern with such high-sounding matters as the ultimate purpose of mankind or their own salvation.
It isn't that they didn't think about these things, and to good effect, but that they always felt that such important matters were not for them. And these individual things have since become of concern to all, their work has ripened of itself, like apples picked green from the trees, and has increasingly matured in sense and sweetness. Pasternak , While an English-speaking reader might be surprised at the solemn tone of the passage which in itself seems very un- Pushkinian , it seems to me that the point of Zhivago's comment is undeniable: It is to be found in the laconicism, in the irony, in the value which his work acquires through the years - in spite of itself, almost.
It is this elusiveness that has led to Pushkin's being understood only imperfectly, or with difficulty. He himself was aware of the fact and shuddered to think of the critical fate which his works would receive at the hands of the 'ignoramus' nevezhda or the 'fool' glupets , to use his own terms from 'The monument' 'Pamiatnik'.
Intimate, personal, elusive, Pushkin is, to quote a cliche that appears apt here, a 'poet's poet,' appreciated most by the Pasternaks, the Mandel'shtams, and the Akhmatovas of this world. In the critical literature, which I survey in chapter one of this study, Pushkin has generally met with everything but understanding at the hands of his critics; his worst fears were justified.
He quickly became an object of national veneration, an icon to be fought over, to be praised or blasphemed, but rarely to be understood. It is my central thesis in this book that what constitutes in one sense the importance of Onegin - its 'programmatic' function, which I described above - has led generations of critics to misapply to it the criteria of realist aesthetics, that is to say of Russian literature of a generation later.
It goes without saying that by 'realism' I under- stand the poetic which formed the Russian prose novel of the s through the s and which strove to invoke in the reader a willing suspension of disbelief and acceptance of the fictive reality as a 'reflection' of the real world. I do not, therefore, use the term in the loose sense in which Soviet critics employ it to mean all works which have a mimetic basis, or even all works which they find ideologically acceptable.
It should therefore not be surprising to the reader if I borrow their insights and terminology at various points in my analysis. I aim, however, to go beyond them in striving to determine what Onegin can be seen to mean in the historicoliterary and personal-biographical circumstances of its creation.
This is still a slightly unusual undertaking in the English-speaking world, where the tendency has been very much to read Onegin in the tradition of the Russian realist novel, the thing we 'know best' a tendency which is no doubt reinforced by the strong tradition of the realist novel in British and American literature.
This a posteriori imposition of the poetics of the realist novel is clear even in the latest translation of the work into English by Charles Johnston , from which Onegin's Journey is totally omitted.
Recent Soviet critics have echoed Tynianov's persuasive argument that the Journey forms a true coda to the work. It is a view that I share and which I shall elaborate in the following study.
Clearly, to omit it totally is to deform the text in a very important way. This 'realist' bias in the view of the work is reinforced by John Bayley's introduction to the translation, which, while containing very useful insights, still manages to talk about the work very much as a novel in which we are totally absorbed in the fates of the characters. If one reads Onegin with the expectations of the realistic novel in mind, one is likely to end up puzzled or even find one's expectations of that genre unmet and reject the work in toto.
This was the logical conclusion to which the nineteenth- century Russian critic Pisarev came, in a rare moment of outspoken iconoclasm. In a sense he was right in dismissing Onegin - right, that is, according to his lights. If the objections which Pisarev had to the work are to be answered, then we must find an interpretation which does justice to both aspects of the work - the poem and the novel- and which permits us to account for the importance the work has been recognized to have by the vast majority of Russian and foreign critics.
An attempt must be made to deal with more than technical aspects of the text.
This is my intention in this book. This book has been written with more than a narrow spectrum of specialists in mind. Translated and with a commentary by Roger Clarke.
