A collection of short stories, this is one of the best works ever written by Lermontov. The writer recounts the occurrence of certain incidents in the life of protagonist, Pechorin. The character of the protagonist is an amalgamation of different people from real life and seems capable of the vilest acts. Truly depicting the degenerating morality of current times, this is a thrilling work.

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
