      " إني لأحتقر نفسي في كثيرٍ من الأحيانتُرى هل هذا هو السبب في أني أحتقر الآخرين؟ "!لماذا يستهوينا الشر؟سؤال غريب؟.سل نفسك كما فعلتُ: لماذا تجذبنا الشخصيات المعقدة,المريضة والشريرة,(أكثر) من الشخصيات الطيبة؟هل الأمر فقط أن مبدعي الشخصيات الشريرة,على قِلَّتهم,أكثر مهارة؟ وأن ال [...]

      And now Childe Harold was sore sick at heart,And from his fellow bacchanals would flee;'Tis said, at times the sullen tear would start,But pride congealed the drop within his e'e- Lord Byron, Childe Harold's Pilgrimage (Canto I, Stanza VI)Another life that vanished too soon. Mikhail Lermontov was only 26 years old when he was killed in a duel. Same fate as another Russian genius, Alexander Pushkin, to whom he dedicated his poem "Death of the Poet": And thus he died - for vengeance vainly thirsti [...]

      بطل المفارقة، والتزييف، والحذاقة، والتصنع، والجرح باحترافية."بطل من هذا الزمان" أو ذاك الزمان فهو متجدد ولا يموت. يحيا في الجيل الذّي يحاول إعادة انبعاثة والترويج له.ليس رجلاً بالمعنى المتعارف عليه.بل جيش من الرذائل استولت على قلبٍ كان لإنسان.كيف تخدش ببساطة من تحب؟وتطعن ف [...]

      “I sing whatever comes into my head. It'll be heard by who it's meant for, and who isn't meant to hear won't understand.” Free will is the ability to chooseNo! I would like to believe so. But there are countless limitations and restrictions which make me wonder why we have been granted with it, if we are going to be judged and chastised for our choices. This is such an argument of a man, Pechorin, who is often alienated for his nullifying philosophical and vilifying romantic views.There is s [...]

      جاءت هذه الرواية لتشعرني بالسعادة ، السعادة التي تأتي حين تشعر إنك تقرأ شيئا جميلا شيئا فارها يشعرك بلذة القراءة وأن هناك كاتبا يحترم قارئه لذلك يقدم له وجبة ستشعره بالشبع ، بالرغم من صغر سن هذا الكاتب حين كتب هذه الرواية اللذيذة نعم استطيع أن أطلق عليها لذيذة لأني إلتهمتها [...]

      One of the most interesting, eye-opening books I've read. I'm not that familiar with Russian literature, but the more I read, the more I'm falling in love with them. This book has got to be one of the most extended, sustained meditation on the egotistical mind of a young casanova. But strangely, the novel doesn't make me despise its protagonist. There is something intriguing, almost refreshing about the calculated cruelty yet disarming honesty of the protagonist. He knows he can't commit and say [...]

      هنالك الكثير من الشخصيات التي ابتكرها الأدباء واستطاعت التحرر من سلطة الورق وتحولت مع مرور الوقت إلى كائنات حيّة تمردت على مبتكريها وتجاوزت في كثير من الأحيان شهرتهم. شخصية "سي السيد" مثلاً التي ابتكرها نجيب محفوظ في ثلاثيته وأصبحت فيما بعد رمزًا للرجل الشرقي المتسلط نموذج [...]

      I've been meaning to read this one for a while. It's one of those Russian classics that's always on those lists. A Hero of Our Time has an interesting format. It's split into sections but these sections are all very different and sometimes don't even involve our "hero" Pechorin. This is all well and good but for a novel that's under 200 pages you'd think that Lermontov would have actually focused on some sort of plot instead of piss arseing around with the structure. Not to mention that this nov [...]

      Sadece 27 yıl yaşamış Lermontov'un tek romanı Zamanımızın Bir Kahramanı, unutulmaz Peçorin karakteriyle insan ruhunun birçok karanlık yanına ışık tutuyor. Klasik bir kötü karakter değil Peçorin, birkaç yerde içini dökerek niçin böyle olduğunu da samimiyetle izah ediyor. Kitapta Kafkas havasını da soluyorsunuz, doğa tasvirleri harika. Kadınlarla ilgili bazı iddialı tespitler rahatsız edici bulunabilir, ama kitabın 1840'da yayınlandığını dikkate alarak bunu a [...]

      بعد قراءة بضعة روايات روسية من القرن التاسع عشر، تتولد لديك قناعة أن نبلاء تلك الحقبة كانوا حفنة من الكسالى غريبي الأطوار، يقضون نهارهم في التفلسف، ولياليهم في الحفلات الراقصة حيث تبحث الأمهات عن شخصيات لامعة لتزويج بناتهن، يواتيهم الملل فجأة ويلاقي نصفهم حتفه في مبارزة جر [...]

      Герой нашего времени = Heros de notretemps = A Hero of Our Time, Mikhail Lermontov A Hero of Our Time (Russian: Герой нашего времени, Geroy nashego vremeni) is a novel by Mikhail Lermontov, written in 1839, published in 1840, and revised in 1841.It is an example of the superfluous man novel, noted for its compelling Byronic hero (or antihero) Pechorin and for the beautiful descriptions of the Caucasus. There are several English translations, including one by V [...]

      Este de fapt un microroman pe care ai să îl citești în câteva ceasuri, primul roman psihologic din literatura rusă, o construcţie minimalistă şi vioaie, în contrast cu scrierile masive şi dense ale autorilor vremii precum Tolstoi sau Dostoievski.Lermontov strecoară voluntar în biografia lui Peciorin câteva elemente din biografia proprie dar, după cum se va dovedi mai târziu, însuşi destinul urmează să strecoare în roman un detaliu esenţial din biografia autorului rezervând [...]

    17. Vit Babenco

      There is something in A Hero of Our Time that even time is powerless to destroy. The novel is full of everlasting feelings and motives that ruled human beings in ancient times and keep ruling now.“I was so delighted to be so high above the world: it was a childlike feeling, I won’t deny it, but withdrawing from the demands of society, and drawing near to nature, we become children without meaning to, and everything that has been acquired falls away from the soul – and it becomes as it once [...]

      A true literary masterpiece, well worth the hype. Well, that would be my opinion in as little words as possible. If you want to read more, why you know what to do- continue reading this review.1. What kind of novel is this?Hero of Our Time is often describes as a predecessor to a psychological Russian novel. It could also be considered a turning work, a literary mix of some sort, in it that it contains elements of both romanticism and realism. It is an interestingly structured little wonder, it [...]

      The shade of Byron, or perhaps more accurately of the Byronic hero (that petulant and brooding vampiric pretty boy that has fascinated us since the days of the famous celebrity-poet), looms large, though in a decidedly ironic fashion, in Lermontov’s _A Hero of Our Time_. The titular ‘hero’ Grigory Alexandrovich Pechorin, seen both from the outside and from within, displays from every angle the nearly perfect vision of the ‘tragic’ Byronic douche bag. From his ability to sway any woman [...]

    21. Whispering Stories

      Lermontov was a Russian army officer, an artist and a writer, principally of poetry but also some prose including this work. A Hero of Our Time was eventually published as a novel although it is five short stories linked by the central character Pechorin and told by two different narrators. Two of the stories were previously published as stand-alone works.The book starts with an introduction by Neil Cornwell which I found very useful to explain the make-up of the book and the nature of Russian p [...]

      I have been dipping my toes into the waters of Russian Literature this year so when I needed to choose a title for my October Literary Birthday Challenge, I thought that A Hero of Our Time would make an interesting read.I was wrong. It was not interesting, it was extremely annoying. At first I did not know who was supposed to be the hero. There was a nameless narrator who meets a soldier on the road and listens to his stories about another soldier. So which of the three was our hero? Turned out [...]

      "A hero of our time" is Russian classics, written by Mikhail Lermontov. He was a Russian Romantic writer, poet and painter. His prose founded the tradition of the Russian psychological novel. The reason I chose this book is that the main character has a lot of similarities with the author. They both were talented, noble, served in military, had sharp wit, enjoyed harsh humor, the story in the book has some similarities to the life of the author. It's a strange type of diary. Nature, customs, peo [...]

      And how often is a deception of the senses or an error of the reason accepted as a conviction! . . . I prefer to doubt everything. Of two friends, one is always the slave of the other, although frequently neither acknowledges the fact to himself. Now, the slave I could not be; and to be the master would be a wearisome trouble, because, at the same time, deception would be required. After all this, is life worth the trouble? And yet we live -- out of curiosity! We expect something new. . . How ab [...]

      Relectura noviembre 2016* Al principio no me convencía, pero terminó mejor de lo que esperaba. Tiene sus vueltas y varios pasajes que me sacaron de quicio. Más allá de eso,Un héroe de nuestro tiempoes un libro respetable, dinámico por momentos y tiene una estructura fragmentaria que lo vuelve menos convencional. Literariamente, es otra de las obras cuyo centro es un protagonista decepcionado y aburrido, predispuesto a vengarse de la vida por no encontrarle el sentido… y porque tampoco na [...]

      أحببت هذا الكتاب، لدرجة أني شعرت بالغيرة من ميخائيل ليرمانتوف. وهناك 3 أسباب رئيسية جعلتني أشعر بالغيرة، وهي:• أنه كتب هذه الرواية وعمره 25، أي أنه كان شاب غير ناضج بالكاملولكن أستطاع أن يملئه بالحكمة، وبتجاربه وتأملاته الحياتية حول الحياة بشكل مقنع، وغير مصطنع، أو دعائي بشك [...]
