Russian-American novelist Vladimir Nabokov's first writings were in Russian, but he achieved his greatest fame with the novels he wrote in the English language. As a trilinqual master, Nabokov not only translated many his own early works into English, but expertly translated the works of many Russia's most important poets and novelists including Alexander Pushkin and Fyodor Tyutchev.
