The Captain’s Daughter

Alexander Pushkin

Released 25th February 2021

As complex as they are gripping, Pushkin’s stories are some of the greatest and most influential ever written. Foundational to the development of Russian prose, they retain stunning freshness and clarity, more than ever in Anthony Briggs’s finely nuanced translations.

These are stores that upend expectations at every turn: in The Captain’s Daughter, Pushkin’s masterful novella of love and rebellion set during the reign of Catherine the Great, a mysterious encounter proves fatally significant during a brutal uprising, while in ‘The Queen of Spades’ a man obsessively pursues an elderly woman’s secret for success at cards, with bizarre results.
