Tales of the Late Ivan Petrovich Belkin, The Queen of Spades, The Captains Daughter, Peter the Greats Blackamoor (The Worlds Classics) by Alexander Pushkin

This volume contains new translations of four of Pushkins best works of fiction. The Queen of Spades has long been acknowledged as one of the worlds greatest short stories, in which Pushkin explores the nature of obsession. The Tales of Belkin are witty parodies of sentimentalism, while Peter the Greats Blackamoor is an early experiment with recreating the past. The Captains Daughter is a novel-length masterpiece which combines historical fiction in the manner of Sir Walter Scott with the devices of the Russian fairy-tale. The Introduction provides close readings of the stories and places them in their European literary context.
