Pushkin, the Russian Autocracy and Rebellion

Professor Robert Chandler, the author of a recent book on the greatest of Russian poets, looks at the politics of Pushkin.


Professor Robert Chandler, the author of a recent book on the greatest of Russian poets, looks at the politics of Pushkin. In particular, he examines the Decembrist movement which led to Russia’s first revolution and the interplay between the intelligentsia, the army and wider society in the thrall of tsardom.

The poet Robert Chandler is the translator of Pushkin's highly vaunted miniature “Dubrovsky”, and the brilliant melodrama, “Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk”. He is also a leading figure in the SCRSS.
