the countess queries.&nbsp;<br /><br />Pushkin produced the first major Russian work in almost every literary genre.<br /><br />Pushkin was a heroic shagger who had time to write only when he had a sexually transmitted disease.<br /><br />Two years later, he married her, writing to a friend to say that she was his 113th love.<br /><br /><b>Turgenev</b><br /><br />Turgenev's father:&nbsp; &nbsp;My son, fear the love of woman;&nbsp; fear that bliss, that poison.<br /><br /><b>Lermontov</b><br /><br />I have a congenital desire to contradict;&nbsp; my whole life is merely a chain of sad and unsuccessful contradictions to heart and mind.<br /><br /><b>Gogol</b><br /><br />Gogol's mother was proud of her son and in old age told neighbors that Nikloai Vasilyevich had invented the railway engine.&nbsp;<br /><br />According to one academic there are eighty-six kinds of food in <b>Dead Souls</b>.<br /><br /><b>Chekhov</b><br /><br />His stories and plays deal with the essential problem of being:&nbsp; How to find meaning before the return to dust.<br /><br />Chekhov felt that he had "wasted his life on fornication"--who hasn't--and wished to write a report on the condition of the prisons and prisoners, hoping that it might do some good.<br /><br />"It seems to me," he said, "that Pushkin and Gogol are not understood here."<br /><br /><b>On Russia</b><br /><br />Their lives were and are consumed with the generally dreadful business of being Russia.<br /><br />Russia emerged as an increasingly shocking country.&nbsp; <br /><br />Catherine the Great said [Russia] was too big to govern, or so they say she said.<br /><br />Russians claim the banya as their first doctor, vodka being the second and raw garlic the third.<br /><br />Russia has two eternal problems, roads and idiots.&nbsp;<br /><br />Quoting Alexandra Kropotkin:&nbsp; "Russians are nice people, though in certain parts of Russia the admixture of Oriental blood may lend a definite touch of deviousness to their thought and behavior."<br /><br />Quoting Alexandra Kropotkin:&nbsp; "The whole of Russia is a prison camp."<br /><br />Dostoevsky:&nbsp; "The most basic spiritual need of the Russian people is the need for suffering, incessant and unslakeable suffering, everywhere and in everything."<br /><br />I remember my friend Colin Thubron, an accomplished Russia watcher and fluent speaker, saying that in decades of visiting, he had never met a smiling Russia.<br /><br />The author's prose [Grossman's]&nbsp; reinforced my opinion, forged both through direct experience and through reading, that for most people, being Russian has always been miserable--before, during, and after communism.&nbsp;<br /><br />...the Soviets like shifting graves around, controlling death as they did life.<br /><br />One of my Russian grammar books says that da and nyet "loosely correspond to yes and no."<br /><br />We covered kto, "who," and chto, "what," or "that."&nbsp; Cats and dogs, it turns out, had to be referred to as "who."&nbsp; I asked Irina why.<br />"Well," she said, "they are not insects."<br /><br /><b>Words I had to look up</b><br /><br />Lubricious<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><b>Other</b><br /><b><br /></b>Raisa Gorbacheva, we heard, was the first Russian First Lady who weighed less than her husband.<br><br><img src="//www.newsblur.com/rss_feeds/icon/2644058" width="16" height="16"> Soviet Roulette and other geniuses of the golden age mud and stars: travels in russia with pushkin raisa gorbachev sara wheeler tolstoy Fur Coat (noreply@blogger.com) Michael Novakhov on Twitter from Michael_Novakhov (4 sites): mikenov on Twitter: RT @washingtonpost: Opinion: Bernie Sanders's political rivals, of course, will target him.
