Eugene Onegin tr. It is as if a sound-proof wall separated Pushkin's poetic novel from the English-reading world.
There is a whole magic which goes by default: the touching lyrical beauty, the cynical wit of the poem; the psychological insight, the devious narrative skill, the thrilling, compulsive grip of the novel; the tremendous gusto and swing and panache of the whole performance. Vladimir Nabokov's seeking into unrhymed iambics reproduces the exact meaning, but explicitly disclaims any further ambition. It can however certainly strive for something else.
seekin It can try to convey the poet's tone of voice, whether world-weary or romantic, the sparkle of his jokes, the flavour of his epigrams, the snap of his final couplets. None of these effects can emerge from a purely literal unrhymed translation.
In fact, ppalms offset the inevitable loss in verbal exactness, a rhyming version can aim at a different sort of accuracy, an equivalence or parallelism conveying, however faintly, the impact of the original. Apart from the overall difficulty of his task, the translator with ambitions of this type will find that Pushkin's work presents him with two particular problems.
The brio of the Russian text partly depends on a lavish use not only of French and other foreign words, but of slang and of audacious Byronic-type rhymes. If the translator produces nothing comparable, he is emasculating his original.
If he attempts to follow suit, he must do all he can to avoid the pitfalls of the embarrassing, the facetious and the arch. It is nominally based on Passiob text, but in fact the relationship is not very close. Anyway, it should be possible now, with the help of Nabokov's literal translation and commentary, to produce a reasonably accurate rhyming version of Pushkin's work which can at least be read with pleasure and entertainment, and which, ideally, might even be able to stand on its own feet as English.
That, in all teentynine, is the aim of the present text.
