Today I loved reading Eugene Onegin so much that I thought I better find out how to pronounce Eugene Onegin in case I wanted to talk to someone about it. I looked it up and listened to a robot saying the name of this very good book. “Eu-gene O-ne-gin” the robot said in perfect English. I thought it would be nice if they gave the robot a Russian accent but they didn’t. I did find out, though, that “Onegin” is pronounced just like you would pronounce it in Spanish if the word had a tilda on the ‘a.’ Oñegin. I listened to it three times to make sure and then imagined a robot dressed like a matador carrying a huge sword.
