Description
Hailed by Salman Rushdie as the most important writer ever to cross the boundary between one language and another, Vladimir Nabokov began writing in English in his 50s, becoming as fluent as he was in French and his native Russian. Here, collected in a single volume as Nabokov had wished, are many of his English translations of Russian verse, in parallel with the original poems, along with his notes on the dangers and thrills of translation.

"As entertaining as Rabelais, as dependable as the O.E.D. What Nabokov has done is to throw a bridge between Russian and American culture, a bridge built out of his all-informative commentary and agonizingly honest translation."Virginia Quarterly Review

"In Verses and Versions we have not only a sampler of the problems and possibilities of literary translation, as demonstrated by someone who wrote and translated in three languages for more than 60 years, but also an authoritative contribution to Nabokov's literary legacy."LATimes

"Mr. Nabokov has not merely rendered the most precious gem of Russia's poetic heritage into limpid, literal poetic translation. He has given Pushkin's wondrous lines the glow and sparkle of their Russian original."NYTimes
