poetry, of which this work is a part, cannot be translated into English retaining the rhymes
and meter of the original. Any attempt to do so is really a composition of a different work, using Pushkin's work
as a starting point. Anyone who does not understand this does not understand the nature of languages
and their differences. Nabokov's work at least gives an idea of what the literal meaning of Evgeny Onegin, insofar
as that can be translated. It is the next best thing to reading the original in Russian.
McNab did not disappoint. He filled in a number of holes that would have been difficult for us to have figured out. I certainly didn't read all of it but I dug in whenever I (or we) had a question. It was pretty helpful and, as expected, interesting.
