Onegin and the noble-spirited Tatiana - in my opinion), according to the novel by the Russian poet Alexander Pushkin.
"But there is no belief in the sincerity of Eugene's feelings. Tatiana understands this. The picture is clear: he is an eternal wanderer, not having any serious occupation, who met a lady whose love he rejected with a smile. And now, seeing her at the ball, in the brilliant splendor of high society, he suddenly becomes filled with feelings for her. Yes, the scenery has changed. The village girl, to whom he once taught a lesson, is now adored by high society. And the opinion of high society is an unquestionable authority for Onegin. He saw that Tatiana had weight in high society and "found" love in himself. And Tatiana, being perceptive and intelligent, realizes this. Most likely, Onegin is in love, but he is only in love with "his new fantasy"."

In 1935, he was accepted into preparatory classes, and two years later, he was enrolled as a student of the sculpture department at the Institute of Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture in Leningrad.
