HA NOI (VNS) — A Vietnamese-Russian collection of poems by Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837) has been published yesterday by the East-West Culture and Language Centre to mark 215th birthday of the great poet.
Translator, lecturer Vu The Khoi who has taught Russian for over 40 years compiled the bilingual book comprising 90 original poems in Russian and 163 translations of 37 top translators.
"Each poem going with several translations would help readers compare the translations with each other and understand more about the piece," said Khoi.
"I expect that the book will meet the demand of Pushkin poetry lovers and students of Russian language and literature."
Khoi released the first book of Pushkin poetry in 2007 comprising 52 poems and 93 translations. — VNS
