Eugene Oneguin is a love story between Onegin and Tatiana, a love story obviously impossible – even though here pusukin is rather rendered impossible and lost forever because of the blindness and contemp What can I say about this Eugene Onegin? Let not a poet’s soul be frozen, Made rough and hard, reduced to bone And finally be turned to stone In that benumbing world he goes in, In that intoxicating slough Where, friends, we bathe together now.
