Aleksandr Sergeyevich Pushkin (1799-1837), who was regarded as the founder of Russian literature, became a writer sensitive to society. He also reflected on his intense interest in Russian language, culture, and the social life of his time. As an output of this, he intended to write a work reflecting the life of the Russian youth. After a few attempts, he wrote his poetic novel, Eugene Onegin, which he described as “my best work” by adding innovations to his creativity.In this study, the features of Eugene Onegin brought to Russian literature were revealed. Through the process of formation of the poetic novel and formal characteristics were revealed differences from the previous Russian poetry.
