‘I think I was about 14 years old when I first read Alexander Pushkin’s Eugene Onegin & Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment. It was the beginning of a life-long love affair with great Russian literature’. Like many youthful infatuations, Stephen Fry moved on to other interests, and lost touch with Russian writing. He was not alone. After the collapse of the USSR in 1990, we in the West stopped reading Russian literature. But that does not mean that the Russians stopped writing. This programme introduces six of the biggest stars of Russian literature—with new works, including original English translations, read by Fry, who is inserted into award-winning original animations of these fictional worlds.
