In response to Answer for Sanna - translation in Russian, Darcy and Bolkonsky, written by Inna on August 09, 1998 at 01:23:31
..I seem to be schizophrenic because I admire both the light English touch in JA and the heavy, brooding mentality in Russian classics.
I studied Tolstoy and Tshechov too much in school - and I would never even compare Darcy, who is a real person for me, to one of
] 'written' persons like Andrew Bolkonsky.
Interesting...Well, itīs always rather mysterious how we create our personal likes and dislikes.These Pemberley discussion boards are a living example of it ...:-)I donīt like Anna Karenina very much but I know a lot of people who love it and donīt care at all about War and Peace. As a matter of fact Andrei grew unto me in the form of an actor Alan Howard in the 70īs BBC-tv-series of War and Peace, so he sort of lives in my mind...
Here in Finland itīs quite all right if you donīt know any Austen-books,
but if you havenīt read any Russian classics or donīt at least know something about them, you canīt be considered as a civilized, cultured... well, a well-read person.;-) Itīs rather funny sometimes.
Michael Bulgakov, his "Master and Margarita". Did you read it?
] No, Iīll try to find it. Thank you for your kind answer. Welcome, Iīll hope you enjoy your visit in Pemberley.
