A Hero of Our Time, which brings tales of Romantic adventure to a new pitch of intensity and reflection.

Lermontov's hero, Pechorin, is a young army officer posted to the Caucasus, where his adventures--amorous and reckless--do nothing to alleviate his boredom and cynicism. World-weary and self-destructive, Pechorin is yet is full of passion and romantic ardor, sensitive as well as arrogant. The episodic narrative transports the reader from the breathtaking terrain of the Caucasus to the genteel surroundings of spa resorts. Told in an engaging yet pointedly ironic style, the story expresses Lermontov's own estrangement from the stifling conventions of bourgeois society and the oppression of Russian autocracy, but it also captures a longing for freedom through acts of love and bravery.
