Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837) is considered the greatest of Russian writers and a central figure in Russian culture. In a short life – he was killed in a duel at 37 – he wrote in a wide variety of forms. He is best known as a poet, but his fiction – prose and verse – marks the beginning of the great tradition of the Russian novel; to understand Tolstoy and Dostoevsky, we need to read Pushkin. Among the fictions we will read are stories, including the Tales of Belkin and "The Queen of Spades," the novella The Captain's Daughter, the novel in verse Eugene Onegin, and Pushkin's history of his African ancestor, The Moor of Peter the Great. We will also read selected short poems.
