Описание

The Queen of Spades is the best known and probably the best of all Russian short stories. It confronts the great riches of a few, the impoverishment of the many in the form of the assistant to the fabulously rich and old Countess, Hermann seeking great wealth through any means, and the Countess's knowledge of how to win one's fortune on three cards. The denouement is worthy of being considered one of the finest in literature. As a great critic said, Gogol's The Overcoat may have been the great work that inspired Russian authors such as Fyodor Dostoevsky, but the Queen of Spades inspired all literature.

  • (4/5)
    I enjoyed these stories, with Dubrovsky being my favorite.
  • (3/5)
    Taking nothing away from Pushkin's fame as a founder of the Russian voice in literature, these "romances" of the era just aren't my thing. Also, two of the four stories here - not just one, as mentioned in the introduction - were left unfinished. The Queen of Spades is a good short story for its time. Too bad Pushkin was on such a short leash with the Czar and his coterie. Highly censored and could never really blossom.
