On Pushkin's Eugene Onegin

Martin Kettle on Pushkin's novella in verse Eugene Onegin:
Pushkin's great wisdom, which Tchaikovsky also captures (in his opera based on the novella), is to grasp that people get themselves wrong. In Eugene Onegin, none of the main characters really knows what he or she really wants. Everybody messes up without meaning to.
