Poem «The Lusiads» of Luís de Camões in Mikhail Travchetov's Translation
(in the collection of Manuscripts Department of the NLR)
Presentation of the book was held on 8 December, 2014, at the National Library of Russia.
This event demonstrated a certain symbolic link between the great Portuguese poet whose life is worthy of description in an action-adventure novel, with a Russian writer – a translator whose literary heritage has tragic fate.
The virtual exhibition tells the story of two poets who lived in periods remote from each other, and the poem that brought together their creative efforts. It also introduces the reader to M. Travchetov's little-known archive materials housed at the Manuscripts Department of the National Library of Rissia
