In Search of Russian Literatures Charming Rotten Scoundrels: Pushkins \"Eugene Onegin\", Lermontovs \"The Hero of Our Time\", and Turgenevs \"Fathers and Sons\".

2024 marks the 200th anniversary of the death of Lord Byron, the creator of the alienated, cynical, and absolutely irresistible characters who to this day bear his name, Byronic.

Emerging out of the initial thrill of the French Revolution of 1789 and the eventual disillusionment with the direction of the revolutionary project and the meteoric rise and fall of Napoleon Bonaparte, the Byronic hero captured the Zeitgeist of the age and spoke to the alienation of an entire generation of European young men who became weary of unhindered idealism which invariably devolved into fratricidal slaughter.

In Alexander Pushkins 1825-1832 novel in verse \"Eugene Onegin\", the titular character, who is described as a Moscovite in Harolds cloak, is an avid reader of Byrons \"Childe Harolds Pilgrimage\" and tries to emulate the Byronic ideal in every possible way, to the bewilderment of his friends and foes. Needless to say, Pushkin wrote the novel under the watchful gaze of a Byron portrait above his desk and a statue of Napoleon on the mantelpiece the two quintessential sources of poetic inspiration of the 19th century!

Professor Barkers talk will focus on the influence of Lord Byron on 19th century Russian literature and the reverberations of Byronic trends in Alexander Pushkins \"Eugene Onegin\", Mikhail Lermontovs \"The Hero of Our Time\", and Turgenevs \"Fathers and Sons\".
