A shepherd's pipe is heard in the distance. Madame Larina begins to reminisce about her own courtship and marriage.

      Regardless of the exact nature of the epigraph, it immediately establishes the connection between literature and life which will remain intensely important through the whole novel. The plot moves to Zaretsky. She explains that she will not oppose the fate that has led her into marriage and berates Onegin for selfishly trying to seduce her. Onegin, however, wakes up late and arrives tardily.

      He decides to avenge himself by dancing and flirting with Olga. Life in the Provinces vs Life in the Captials In Pushkin's time, the centers of Russian political, social, and cultural life were the two capitals, Moscow and St. The final parts of the book were published inand complete editions of the book appeared in and, with minor revisions, in Zaretsky's first chance to end the duel is when he delivers Lensky's written challenge to Onegin chapter 6, stanza IX. In the dream, she is chased over a frozen winter landscape by a terrifying bear representing the ferocity of Onegin's inhuman persona and confronted by demons and goblins in a hut she hopes will provide shelter.

Eugene Onegin book

The most fatalistic moment of the novel is Lensky's death. Onegin tells Tatyana of his boredom in the country and describes the death of his uncle and his subsequent inheritance of a nearby estate. As the first shooter, he couldn't show that he was deliberately trying to miss the opponent, because this was considered as a serious insult and could create a formal reason to appoint another duel.
