For many Russian writers and readers, Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837) holds a special place: his position in Russian literature is often compared to Shakespeare's in English, Dante's in Italian, and Goethe's in German. In this episode, Jacke talks to Pushkin translator Robert Chandler (Peter the Great's African: Experiments in Prose) about the life and works of Russia's "greatest poet and founder of modern Russian literature."
