Ben Holland

Pushkin House, Bloomsbury Square, London

BRINGING PUSHKIN & PLATONOV TO LIFE IN ENGLISH.

A lecture on the works of two of Russia's greatest writers, Pushkin and Platanov.

A lecture by Robert Chandler. Ben Holland will be joining Robert, and Robert will be reading from Ben Holland's adaptation of Pushkin's 'Queen of Spades'. In Robert's words - "Ben Holland's ballad translation of 'Queen of Spades' captures the spirit of Pushkin's story more perfectly than any prose translation I know (my own included!).
