Famous long poem in verse, the definitive version of which appeared in 1841. Nicknamed the “poet of the Caucasus”, Mikhail Yurievich Lermontov (1814-1841), also a playwright and novelist, is one of the great representatives of Russian romanticism. His work expresses the revolt and bitterness of an entire generation.
Beautiful original illustrations by Moscow artist Vladimir Poluektov.
