Marian at Tanglewood is having a Eugene Onegin Read-Along for 5 weeks beginning January 7, 2014. Pushkin was seen as setting the foundation for Russian literature so if you are looking for an introduction, this work is a wonderful place to start.
Here is the schedule:
Ch. 1 & 2 – January 7 to 16
Ch. 3 & 4 – January 16 to 25
Ch. 5 & 6 – January 25 – February 3
Ch. 7 & 8 – February 3 to 12
She has decided to allow 1 1/2 weeks per every two chapters, which seems like a decent balance between going at a regular clip and dragging on too long.
Please see the Tanglewood blog for further instructions and also a lovely calendar for a visual schedule of the read.
Since I just finished reading Eugene Onegin, I am very excited to be participating in the discussion of Pushkin’s “untranslatable” poem. Thanks for organizing the read, Marian!
