A lecture by journalist and historian Alexander Korsak was held at the Russian Centre in Brussels. In French, he told the audience about the greatest Russian poet Alexander Pushkin.
Opening the evening, the head of the RCSC Vera Bunina noted that there was no need to present Korsak to the audience of the Russian Centre, he had already performed on this stage more than once. But it is very important that he tells the Europeans about Russia and the famous Russians in French. Bunina also reminded that in the near future all the guests of the Centre will have a few more conversations about literature, for example, a meeting with writer Zakhar Prilepin and translator Julian Henry Lowenfeld.
Alexander Korsak spoke about the most important stages of Pushkin’s life, including studying at the Tsarskoye Selo Lyceum and exile in Mikhailovskoye, and about the main works of the great poet.
