A Hero of Our Time


A hero of Our Time centres upon the dashing exploits of a truly enigmatic figure, a young officer named Pechorin. In a series of five episodes, which first weave a spell of mystery around Pechorin, then subject him to searching analysis, he emerges as far more than the standard Byronic hero. He stands in all his inner contradiction and complexity as a prototype of the self-tortured spiritually adrift, existential man. A vivid reflection of his own age’s malaise, he has become a hero of our time as well.
