Alexander Pushkin's Short Story about Greed and Avarice

“Two fixed ideas can no more exist together in the moral world than two bodies can occupy one and the same place in the physical world.”

― Alexander Pushkin, The Queen of Spades

The Queen of Spades by Alexander Pushkin is a Russian short story about avarice and human choice. When a prudent man named Hermann hears of a countess who possessed a secret trick for gambling at cards, he thinks he has discovered the answer to his financial problems.
