    A good question. There’s a lot of movement in Pushkin’s prose, is what I mean. Movement as action, or of the camera, so to speak.

    I always enjoy these Links posts. I always learn something.

      I think that makes sense. I’ll be thinking about these characterizations next time I read Pushkin’s prose, I’m sure.

      I’m glad if you like the links posts – they’re fun to put together.

    The Ungern book should be interesting. The latest I’ve read about him was a pulp-ish book by Yuzefovich. Still worth reading though.
