Famous for his enormously influential poetry and plays, Alexander Pushkin is also beloved for his short stories. This collection showcases his tremendous range, which enabled him to portray the Russian people through romance, drama, and satire. The sparkling humor of the five "Tales of Belkin" contrasts with a dark fable of gambling and obsessive greed in "The queen of spades" and the masterful historical novella, "The Captain's daughter," a story of love and betrayal set during a rebellion in the time of Catherine the Great.
