VN's "Bedside" Pushkin
Dear List,

A clarification on my guess regarding VN's Russian description of "Ya pomnyu chudnoe mgnoven'e" in the margins of his "gofmanskii Pushkin" of 1937: when I wrote that this description could have been destined for his Pushkin public talk of 1931, I meant the revised version of this talk c. 1949. VN revisited this talk at the request of Vladimir Zenzinov who wanted him to give it at a literary soiree in New York, but VN eventually decided against it.

Best wishes,

Stanislav Shvabrin
