Complete lyrics and shorter poems - Volume II

The poems in Volume II cover Pushkin’s poetic output during his early years in St Petersburg (from age 18 to 21) and during his banishment (in his early twenties) to the southern edge of the Russian empire in modern Moldova and the new city of Odessa.  These were years of camaraderie, laddishness and easy love; they were also years of increasing political disillusion and disfavour.  These experiences coloured but did not limit the range and inventiveness of his verses.
