In its adventurous happenings–its abductions, duels, and sexual intrigues–A Hero of Our Time looks backward to the tales of Sir Walter Scott and Lord Byron, so beloved by Russian society in the 1820s and ’30s. In the character of its protagonist, Pechorin–the archetypal Russian antihero–Lermontov’s novel looks forward to the subsequent glories of a Russian literature that it helped, in great measure, to make possible. This edition includes a Translator’s Foreword by Vladimir Nabokov, who translated the novel in collaboration with his son, Dmitri Nabokov.

Baron Baden-Powell is nowadays remembered best for his work as the founder of the Scouting Movement which has gone on to become a world-wide success; however his initial reputation rested on his military career centred on the Boer War. Colonel Baden-Powell, as he then was, commanded at Mafeking and was charged with its defence no matter the odds. At his command he had few resources, even fewer men and slim prospects of holding out against overwhelming odds. What this book tells, with great gusto, is the miracle that Baden-Powell contrived to bring about by successfully defending Mafeking for seven months. His tactics were often unconventional but very effective in keeping up both the spirits of the townspeople and the Boers at bay. He set an example of sang-froid that was instrumental in ensuring the troops under his command did not give in to the fears of the odds facing them. The following anecdote is characteristic of him: “Soon after the redoubtable Cronje [The Boer General] took command of the Boer forces, he forwarded a demand for surrender, to avoid further bloodshed, to which the reply [Baden-Powell’s] was, "When will the bloodshed begin?"” Highly recommended. Author — W. Francis Aitken Text taken, whole and complete, from the edition published in 1900, London, by S W Partridge & Co. Original Page Count – 175 pages. Illustrations — 1 Portrait.

Excerpt from A Hero of Nowadays Now that the Victorian Age is rapidly getting out of sight round a corner of the road, and that Byron's greatness may be expected to regain at home the recognition which he has never lacked abroad, this may, perhaps, serve as a first claim to engage the British reader's interest. Then there are some fanciers to whom a poet's prose is always a delicacy, like a colourist's occasional exercises in black and white. Add to these, as a third, a nationalist consideration, that Lermontov, as his name betrays, was partly of Scottish origin. Fate would have it that within a few hours of his end he should be dancing at a Scottish party in Piatigorsk. I dare say some will recognize a Scottish type of face in the drawing of him which was made the day after his death. Be this fanciful or no (let physiognomists and ethnologists settle it), the Scottish strain in his genius is unmistakable. He is a signal instance of the fine-edged self-consciousness which commonly marks the literary Scot - the quality which is seen in various degrees in Carlyle and Stevenson, and the lamented author of "The House with the Green Shutters" (to say nothing of lesser modern lights), and which Byron himself so conspicuously inherited from his Scottish mother.
