“evil’s brief moment, though, will pass:
it’s not for long ill-luck will stalk you.”
– Alexander Pushkin, Ruslan and Lyudmila, Line 218-219.
Ruslan and Lyudmila is the book that occupies my reading time these days. It is “Pushkin’s second longest poetical work”, “a dramatic and ingenious retelling of Russian folklore, full of humour and irony.”
So far, I am enjoying the book completely (and if it helps, I have a soft corner for Russian literature). Lets see what magic the coming pages create.
These two lines don’t really need a supplementary message, do they? 🙂
P. S. – I know I’m late. Please read, ‘Dear Readers,‘ and you’ll know why.
