FROM THE PUBLISHER - According to the annals of Kievan Russia, four territorial princes set out on April 23, 1185, for the prairies beyond the river Donets to fight the Kumans who had been assailing the southeastern steppes of Russia for the last hundred years. The four princes were Igor-the leader of the expedition- his brother, his nephew and his young son. On Sunday, May 12, the four princes were defeated and taken captive, whereupon the Kumans invaded Russia and made off with much booty. Six centuries later, in about 1790, a manuscript text of THE SONG OF IGORíS CAMPAIGN turned up quite unexpectedly in a batch of antiquities and proved to be, according to Mr. Nabokov, Ďa magnificent literary masterpiece.í His translation gives a literal rendering of the text as he understands it, and his accompanying notes illuminate the history of the work and its structure.
