A young noblewoman elopes with the wrong man in a blizzard. An army officer waits years to exact revenge on a count for a dormitory insult. Following a disparaging toast, an undertaker vows to invite only his deceased customers to a party. A poor station-master’s daughter is swept away by a handsome captain to Saint Petersburg. And, a landowner’s daughter pretends to be a peasant to win the affection of handsome Alexei.
 
From the award-winning translators Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, a dazzling new translation of Alexander Pushkin’s first prose works. These five short masterpieces from the Romantic era have been beloved for their light humor, biting cultural satire, and profound depth in Russia and abroad for almost two centuries. Soon to be collected in the forthcoming, Novels, Tales, Journeys, “The Tales of the Late Ivan Petrovich Belkin” by the father of Russian literature, evoke the extraordinary register of life in nineteenth century Russia.
