Visual Companion to Pushkin’s Eugene Onegin

26 Feb

I think some of you already know how much I loved Pushkin’s novel in verse ‘Eugene Onegin’. Well, this is my visual companion to this book, these are just some pictures (mostly portraits) that come to my mind when I think about Tatiana, Olga, Lensky and the main character – Eugene Onegin. By the way, the film Eugene Onegin (1999), with Ralph Fiennes, Toby Stephens and Liv Tyler, is brilliant. I think all three are superb actors. If you can’t be bothered to read the book, you must see the film.

My inspirations for April

30 Apr

Well, I’ve read a few interesting books in April – Eugene Onegin for the first time, Sense and Sensibility and Jane Eyre – I can’t possibly count which time it was. I’ve also watched Jane Eyre (2011) and Sense and Sensibility (1995) again! Movie Onegin (1999.) starring Ralph Fiennes is quite good and very accurate. I’ve pretty much been in the 1840s atmosphere, since I’m writing a story set in that decade I had no other option than to be. It’s my favourite decade of Victorian era and most of my stories are set around those times for it is the most interesting and the most inspiring era for me.
