From the award-winning translators: the complete prose narratives of the most acclaimed Russian writer of the Romantic era and one of the world's greatest storytellers.

The father of Russian literature, Pushkin is beloved not only for his poetry but also for his brilliant stories, which range from dramatic tales of love, obsession, and betrayal to dark fables and sparkling comic masterpieces, from satirical epistolary tales and romantic adventures in the manner of Sir Walter Scott to imaginative historical fiction and the haunting dreamworld of "The Queen of Spades." The five short stories of The Late Tales of Ivan Petrovich Belkin are lightly humorous and yet reveal astonishing human depths, and his short novel, The Captain's Daughter , has been called the most perfect book in Russian literature.

Dubrovsky: This short novel was a great deal of fun. The characters were very lively and vivid, and the story had several “Aha!” moments in it. The ending was a perfect literary Russian ending!

The Queen of Spades:This very short novel was filled with great twists and beautiful imageries. I loved how the perspective changed as the story unfolded. This work truly shows Pushkin’s skill as all the elements are far more fleshed out and concrete than the length would have you believe.
