For the past several days we’ve been trying to explain Onegin’s character. So far I don’t remember anyone using the term “sanctimonious.” It fits. But, just to offer some options, I looked up the word on and found some other applicable words: smug, self-satisfied and Pecksniffian (after the Dickens character Seth Pecksniff in “Martin Chuzzlewit”).
