An interesting book. I'm glad I read it. Lermontov was a contrary character, a strange personality who brought so many of his problems on himself. For a look into Tsarist Russia this book will interest you, especially since it presents the Caucasus of that time in all its wild appeal to artistic souls. It was a frontier, a siren call to more than one great writer.

A fantastic biography of a man whose life reads like a novel. Wonderful descriptions of the period and Lermontov's environments in St. Petersburg society, time in Tbilisi (Tiflis) and Georgia with local nobility, and his adventures and untimely death in the Caucasus. Laurence Kelly's book is a masterpiece.
