Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia.
Thank you for listening in.
“We still, alas, cannot forestall it This dreadful ailment’s heavy toll; The spleen is what the English call it, We call it simply, Russian soul.”
Alexander Pushkin, Eugene Onegin
Elisabeth Van Der Meer from the extraordinary blog, A Russian Affair, has once again joined me from Finland, the far distance of 7,514 km from Vancouver. We have come to the end, the grand finale, of the Eugene Onegin Challenge. We are at the unforgettable chapter eight, where everything become clear. Or does it?
So, put the kettle on and add to this exciting conversation.
I am your host Rebecca Budd and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
When we first started this journey, Elizabeth wrote in her blog:
“With this challenge I hope to add something extra to your reading experience that will make it more interesting, intense, attentive, and (even more) enjoyable. I will be eating, dreaming, thinking, hearing Eugene Onegin for the next four months and I can’t wait to find out what the end result will be!”
We may have completed the challenge, but the pathway continues into the far horizon. There are more adventures ahead on A Russian Affair with Elizabeth Van Der Meer. Until next time, dear friends, keep safe and be well.
