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's edition of his stories includes all the mature work. In addition to such novella-length 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. This version is translated by Paul Debreczeny and Walter Arndt. (Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)

Review quote

"Pushkin is not only Russia's primary and archetypal author but her most astonishingly versatile one . . . There is something Mozartian about his genius, which is replete in the same manner with variety, gaiety, and depth . . . [His prose stories] are not only as much masterpieces as his tales in verse, but carry the same unmistakable and original stamp of his style and personality." --from the Introduction by John Bayley
