"The first time I saw your horse," continued Azamat, "when he was wheeling and leaping under you, his nostrils distended, and the flints flying in showers from under his hoofs, something I could not undertook place within my soul." --Mikhail Lermontov, "A Hero of Out Time"

Time to revisit one of my degrees, Russian. 😬 I based my Russian dissertation mainly around this book.

We are pleased to announce an upcoming co-production between HUNCHtheatre and Stage RC, based on Viktor Shenderovich’s new play “To See Salisbury”. Last year, the city of Salisbury became infamous for being the site of a showdown within the Russian secret service, involving the new poison N0VICHOK - a Russian word now firmly embedded in British reality. A year on, and the theatre world has not yet responded to this event.
Viktor Shenderovich is a well-known anti-Putin satirist in Russia. He has written a funny and darkly surreal play that explores fake news, cultural identity and the fragile relationship between Britain and Russia.
We are experimenting with creating two shows simultaneously: a Russian and a British version, with separate casts.
It is a great honour for us to introduce this new playwright to an English audience, and we are happy to be working with producer Irina IoNessian (Stage RC). We can't wait to explore this richly complex and fascinating material.
Stay tuned for more information!

Few more chapters and I'll be done with my first novel for 2019. Not sure what to read next. Badly want Evelyn Waugh's "Brideshead Revisited" but the copy I ordered online hasn't been delivered yet. Here are some of the classics I've been eyeing to mentally consume this year. 📚📖📙😊 #ataleoftwocities #aheroofourtime #thediaryofanobody #pic #thewildirishgirl #thequietamerican #thelordoftheflies #oneflewoverthecuckoosnest #lolalolita #myantonia #charlesdickens #grahamgreene #willcather #williamgodwin #bookstagram #booknerds #reading #classics #classicliterature #bookworm

Bütün dünyayı sevmeye hazırdım; değerlendiren çıkmadı: Böylelikle de nefret etmeyi öğrendim. Renksiz gençliğimi, kendime ve dünyaya karşı giriştiğim savaşta tükettim. Alaya alınmaktan korktuğum için, en iyi duygularımı yüreğimin derinlerine gömdüm: Orada silinip gittiler. İçimden geldiğince konuşurdum; inandıramadım. Aldatıcılığa vurdum işi. Toplumda geçer tutumları öğrenince hayat okulunda kurtlaştım. Benim onca çabayla elde ettiğim çıkarları, başkalarının tatlı canlarını üzmeden, ustalığa gereksinim duymadan elde edip mutlu olduklarını gördüm.

Hayatın kasırgası içinden birkaç fikirle çıktım ben, duygu aramayın. Ben çoktandır kalbimle değil de, kafamla yaşıyorum. Tutku ve davranışlarım ilgisizce ama merakla inceliyorum. İki insan var ben de, biri kelimenin tam anlamıyla yaşıyor, öteki ise onu yargılıyor.

Mikhail Lermontov - "A Hero of Our Time"

#68 of 2018: A Hero of Our Time by Mikhail Lermontov or Герой Нашего Времени - Михаил Лермонтов

I wanted to dive back into reading more Russian literature. And just randomly picked up A Hero of Our Time by Lermontov and fell in love with it. What a fantastic work. Hard to review, also I don’t give up storyline in my reviews - only my impressions. It’s composed of several short unrelated (they are only related through the protagonist, some may call him anti-hero). The first story is told through the perspective of different narrator about the protagonist, then the rest of the book narrated by protagonist. There are stories within stories.
Protagonist or anti-hero, military officer Pechorin, is egotist, smart, a little nihilist, a little existentialist, sinister in his relationships and manipulates with people’s feelings, but aware of all his behavior and honest about it (doesn’t hide them). But he’s different from all other typical nihilist and existentialist characters in that, he thinks of life as a play and he enjoys to take part in it.
In parts very sad, in parts hilarious story. Right away it became one of my favorite books. | “I love enemies, though not in the Christian sense. They amuse me, stir my blood. To be always on one’s guard, to catch every glance, the meaning of every word, to guess intentions, to crush conspiracies, to pretend to be deceived and suddenly with one blow to overthrow the whole immense and laboriously constructed edifice of cunning and design—that is what I call life.” |

Last #bookhaul of the year, I suppose 😅. The other day I went in a #bookstore here in the city where I study in which there where a looooot of #usedbooks and, of course, I HAD to buy something. I've been there looking at all the #books and I've picked up:
- The three musketeers #thethreemusketeers #itremoschettieri #lestroismousquetaires #alexandredumas (father) in this wonderful #edition that I truly love.This #book has been recommended to me so many times I can't even count them, and I decided to give it a chance. To be honest, I have never been very interested on it. I even didn't like it when I was a child 😂 but I hope to change my mind in #reading it. - Crime and Punishment #crimeandpunishment #delittoecastigo #преступлениеинаказание #dostoevskij #достоевский : many of you certainly don't know this, but I've studied #russianlanguage at University and I have always regretted the fact that I know very little of #russianliterature 😶. Because of this, I've decided to #read something more about it. I have to say this is not the first book I read by this author and that I am afraid I will not enjoy it, as I haven't enjoyed #whitenights (#lenottibianche). But I know this is his #masterpiece and I hope I will be, finally, struck by this #author 🙏.
- A hero of our time #aheroofourtime #uneroedelnostrotempo #героинашеговремени #lermontov #лермонтов : bought for the same reasons of Crime and Punishment. This book has also been recommended to me by a professor and, having seen it there I've decided to pick it up. I don't know much about it, but I hope I will enjoy it.

I haven't posted much this last weeks, but for the end of the year I hope I'll be able to show you my last reading and a recap of all the books read in 2018.
That's all, folks.

#AHeroofOurTime
#Lermontov
A masterpiece of Russian prose, Lermontov's only novel was influential for many later 19th century authors, including Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, and Chekhov. Lermontov's hero, Pechorin, is a dangerous man, Byronic in his wasted gifts and his cynicism, and desperate for any kind of action that will stave off boredom. In five linked episodes, Lermontov builds up a portrait of a man caught in and expressing the sickness of his times.
The first major Russian novel, A Hero of Our Time was both lauded and reviled upon publication. Its dissipated hero, twenty-five-year-old Pechorin, is a beautiful and magnetic but nihilistic young army officer, bored by life and indifferent to his many sexual conquests. Chronicling his unforgettable adventures in the Caucasus involving brigands, smugglers, soldiers, rivals, and lovers, this classic tale of alienation influenced Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, and Chekhov in Lermontov’s own century, and finds its modern-day counterparts in Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange, the novels of Chuck Palahniuk, and the films and plays of Neil LaBute.

M. Lermontov’s “A Hero of Our Time” published from Foreign Languages Publishing House, Moscow in 1951 as a part of Classics of Russian Literature series.

Mikhail Lermontov was one of Greatest figure of Russian Romanticism.

A Hero of Our Time published in 1840 about a compelling Byronic hero and known for a beautiful description of Caucasus. The partially autobiographical story, describing prophetically a duel like the one in which he would eventually lose his life, consisted of five closely linked tales revolving around a single character, a disenchanted, bored and doomed young nobleman. Later it came to be considered a pioneering classic of Russian psychological realism.

D.S. Mirsky said about the novel. "The perfection of Lermontov's style and narrative manner can be appreciated only by those who really know Russian, who feel fine imponderable shades of words and know what has been left out as well as what has been put in. Lermontov's prose is the best Russian prose ever written, if we judge by the standards of perfection and not by those of wealth. It is transparent, for it is absolutely adequate to the context and neither overlaps it nor is overlapped by it”

“No one is so persistent in his desire for love. In no one is evil so attractive. No one promises so much happiness in a look. No one knows better how to use his advantages. And no one can be so genuinely unhappy as you, because no one tries so hard to persuade himself that he isn’t.” 📖 \\p. 169, translated by Paul Foote; Penguin, 1966\\
.
The cover shows a detail of a water-colour portrait of Mikhail Yur’evich Lermontov by unknown artist (c. 1839-1840). 🎨 I must say I love Lermontov’s hairstyle!
.
Book no. 66, okay this is the last read in this year. 😁
Best known as the greatest Russian poet after Pushkin, this his only novel.
Part swashbuckler, part travelogue, it is consists of five separate stories (‘Bela’, ‘Maxim Maximych’, ‘Taman’, ‘Princess Mary’ – the most engaging part, in my opinion & ‘The Fatalist’) relating episodes of Grigory Alexandrovich Pechorin, & what an interesting ‘hero’ you are! So cynical & disillusioned ✔️ Love the plot as well as Lermontov’s style as a writer. He wrote this one in his 20s and then died in a duel not long after it was published. Too young to die! (just like Jeff Buckley, Elliott Smith or Nick Drake 😕)

#AHeroOfOurTime

The superfluous man ‘is often unmindful, indifferent or unempathetic with society's issues and can carelessly distress others with his actions, despite his position of power.’ Familiar?
