Peter CarsonPeter Carson (3 October 1938 – 9 January 2013) was an English publisher, editor and translator of Russian literature. He was educated at Eton College and learnt Russian at home from his mother and during his National Service years at the Joint Services School for Linguists. He has translated two titles for Penguin Classics: several of Anton Chekhov's plays, and ''Fathers and Sons'' by Ivan Turgenev. The latter was praised by reviewers in the ''Times'' and the ''Times Literary Supplement''. Donald Rayfield wrote in the ''Times Literary Supplement'': "If you want to get as close as an English reader can to enjoying Turgenev, Carson is probably the best." He ironically completed a translation of ''The Death of Ivan Ilyich'', a story of a dying man, and ''A Confession'' shortly before his death.
He was married to Eleo Gordon. Provided by Wikipedia
