Writing with lyrical simplicity, Pushkin laid the foundations of an indigenous national literature. Considered in his day Russia's greatest poet, Pushkin was famous not only for works that inspired ballets and operas, such as Eugene Onegin and Boris Godunov, but for his stories--"The Queen of Spades" and many others--all of which are collected here in a translation that captures their grace and vitality.
