Summary
"Proud, wilful and charismatic, Pechorin is Byronic in his wasted gifts and bored by his stifling world. With a predatory energy for any activity that will relieve his ennui, he embarks on a series of exciting adventures, involving smugglers, brigands, soldiers, rivals and lovers, and leaves a trail of broken hearts behind him." "A Hero of Our Time is a literary landmark, the first example of the psychological novel in Russia. Its five linked episodes, using different narrators and Pechorin's own diaries, act as a series of snapshots which form a complex portrait of this fascinating character. Lermontov's novel inspired Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky and Chekhov among others in the great stream of nineteenth-century masters that followed."--Jacket
