About the Author

Andrew Kahn is Professor of Russian Literature at the University of Oxford and Fellow and Tutor in Modern Languages at St Edmund Hall, Oxford. He has degrees from Harvard and Oxford in Russian and Classics. His scholarly research draws on his wide-ranging interests in European literature, most especially Greek, Latin and French, and displays a broad learning. In addition to writing about Pushkin, he works on Enlightenment literature in Russia and Europe, on the history of ideas, the comparative reception of European culture in Russia, travel writing, the history of translation, and twentieth-century poetry.


Review from previous edition Kahn has taken an exhilarating new direction in Pushkin studies... Kahn's close readings remind us just how much lingering in the study lay behind the creation of Pushkin's fleet-footed lines. * Rachel Polonsky, Times Literary Supplement *
Andrew Kahn has produced an extremely erudite study of Pushkin's lyrics...The volume is imaginatively organized around a set of themes that shed light on how Russia's greatest poet formed and developed his ideas. * MLA Prize committee *
Kahn has reset one horizon for twenty-first-century Pushkin studies. It is a rare book that makes us reconsider what we thought we knew so fundamentally * Monika Greenleaf, Slavic Review *
Pushkin's Lyric Intelligence is handsomely produced by Oxford University Press... with splendid illustrations for the chapter on heroism. Kahn writes elegantly and incisively * Stephanie Sandler, East European Journal *
