Dido (Queen of Carthage)
The Queen of Spades and Other Stories Автор: Alexander P.
This volume contains three other major works of Pushkin' s fiction, moving from the witty parodies of sentimentalism and high melodrama in "The Tales of Belkin" to an early experiment with recreating the past in Peter the Great' s Blackamoor. It concludes with the novel-length masterpiece "The Captain' s Daughter", which combines historical fiction in the manner of Sir Walter Scott with the colour and devices of the Russian fairy-tale in a narrative of rebellion and romance. These new translations, as well as being meticulously faithful to the original, do full justice to the elegance and fluency of Pushkin' s prose. The Introduction provides insightful readings of the stories and places them in their European literary context. "The Queen of Spades" has long been acknowledged as one of the world' s greatest short stories. In this classic literary representation of gambling, Alexander Pushkin explores the nature of obsession. Hints of the occult and gothic alternate with scenes of St Petersburg high-society in the story of the passionate Hermann' s quest to master chance and make his fortune at the card-table. 554 руб √ в наличии
