Boris Godunov19990603

From 1824 to 1825, Pushkin was confined to his family's estate.

In his solitude, he wrote some of his best-loved lyric poems and read voraciously - his discovery of Shakespeare inspiring his historical drama `Boris Godunov'.

Gerard Mcburney talks to the curator of the estate, Alexander Bykovsky.
