Product Description

Pushkin's prose tales are the foundation stones on which the great novels of Turgenev, Tolstoy and Dostoevsky were built, but they are also brilliant and fascinating in their own right. In both prose and verse, Pushkin was one of the world's great storytellers: direct and dramatic, clear-sighted, vivid and passionate. This new and expanded Everyman edition of his stories includes all the mature work. In addition to such masterpieces as The Captain's Daughter and The Tales of Belkin the collection now contains many more short pieces and the masterly History of Pugachev, a powerful account of the man who rebelled against Catherine the Great.

Author Bio

Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837) was a poet, playwright, and novelist who achieved literary prominence before he was twenty. His radical politics led to government censorship and periods of banishment from the capital, but he eventually married a popular society beauty and became a regular part of court life. Notoriously touchy about his honor, he died at age thirty-seven in a duel with his wife's alleged lover.
