Your help will be greatly appreciated if someone can provide me with published literary translations of the following lines:

Pushkin, 19th October, 1825:
"Служенье муз не терпит суеты,
прекрасное должно быть величаво"
(19th October, 1825 is the date when the verse was written; usually it also serves as the tentative title. The quoted lines open the 13th stanza of the verse.)

Baratynsky, The Muse:
"Ее лица необщим выраженьем"
(This is the 9th line of this short verse.)

This is a tall order, I know, but just in case there are some Pushkin and/or Baratynsky fans here who have their tomes in the home library... Thanks a lot!

P.S. Here is the Pushkin's verse complete:

No Success Jun 3, 2006

I tried the book "Pushkin Threefold" by Walter Arndt, E.P.Dutton & co., 1972 SBN 052518652-2. It is a book with the original Pushkin, a prose translation, and metric translation. I was unable to identify the poem you mentioned.

Maybe you can see it there.

Yours truly,

Stephen Rifkind
