9780140447958: A Hero of Our Time (Penguin Classics)


The first example of the psychological novel in Russia, A Hero of Our Time influenced Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, and Chekhov, and other great nineteenth-century masters that followed. Its hero, Pechorin, is Byronic in his wasted gifts, his cynicism, and his desire for any kind of action-good or ill-that will stave off boredom. Outraging many critics when it was first published in 1840, A Hero of Our Time follows Pechorin as he embarks on an exciting adventure involving brigands, smugglers, soldiers, rivals, and lovers.

This edition includes a new introduction, chronology, suggestions for further reading, maps, and full explanatory notes.


@BAMF Who is that sublime woman? She is perfect. Oh, excellent: Grushinsky seems to like her. I’m going to cock-block him. How typically me.

My plan to seduce her is simple: act like I always have better things to do, insult her, and act as though I have nothing left to live for.

Apparently she’s begging for an introduction? I wonder if this kind of thing works in real life?

From the Publisher:

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.

From the Publisher:

"A Hero of Our Time is a book comprising five stories 'Bela,' 'Maxim Maximych,' 'Taman,' 'Princess Mary,' and 'The Fatalist' linked by a single subject. In it Lermontov describes Pechorin, the hero of the day, of a terrible era, a wasted, cruel, and useless man, who passes indifferently by majestic landscapes and plain but wonderful people with pure hearts. In his five stories he reveals perfect art, which is real, wise, masterly in style and delightful."

Alexei Tolstoy
