Onegin Parodies

Onegin Parodies

Guidelines

  • How would you translate Eugene Onegin into the USA of the 2000s?
  • Who would Eugene, Lensky and Tatyana be? What cultural artifacts show their natures, form their consciousnesses, have consequences for their lives?
  • What artistic dilemmas does “Pushkin” address and how?
  • Create any form, genre, content. Focus on a particular moment, chapter, set of stanzas, or sketch out a plot line.
  • To write a novel (a prose genre) in verse was a shocker in 1823. What would have that effect now?
