Opinion | My greatest aspiration is to master Oblomov's ability to laze about guilt-free. Here are some linguistic pointers.
And then there is this brilliant description of the most beloved lazybones in Russian literature: Главных свойств Обломова ― задумчивой лени и ленивого безделья ― в Иване Александровиче не было и следа (Ivan Alexandrovich didn’t have a bit of Oblomov’s main qualities: pensive listlessness and listless indolence). You must agree that this is lazing about elevated to nearly a state of grace. Best of all, he doesn’t feel guilty.
