Pushkin is the father of Russian literature and, arguably, the creator of modern literary Russian language. His poetry is still recited in Russian schools - but how relevant is his work to a nineties audience? To celebrate the bicentenary of Pushkin's birth, theatre composer Gary Yershon assesses his importance to poets and novelists in post-Communist
Russia and beyond, and explores the historical development of his literary reputation. With Vladimir Ashkenazy , Professor A Briggs, Ralph Fiennes ,
Elaine Feinstein , Natalia Rubinstein , Lev Loseff and Olga Segakova. Poetry read by Ralph Fiennes. Producer Susan Roberts
