"Eugene Onégin" is an epic poem by Alexander Pushkin. The story revolves around a Russian dandy and his dalliances with women. While visiting his newly inherited estate, Eugene meets Tatyana, who soon falls passionately in love with him. Tatyana writes Eugene a letter proclaiming her love, but Eugene flatly rejects her. Eugene instead flirts with Tatyana’s sister, Olga. He challenges Lensky, Olga’s fiancé, to a duel, and ends up killing him. Years pass, and when Eugene meets Tatyana for a second time, he realizes what an accomplished woman she has become. Though he vies for her heart, Tatyana rejects Eugene and remains married to her husband.
