In autumn 1830 the great Russian poet came to his Boldino estate (Nizhny Novgorod region) for settling some hereditary questions before his marriage with Natalya Goncharova. But he had to stay there for three and a half months because of a cholera quarantine in the region. For that time Pushkin wrote about 50 works. In particular, he finished his verse novel "Yevgeny Onegin", created cycles "The Tales of the Late Ivan Petrovich Belkin", "The Little Tragedies" and began his fairy-tales cycle. Besides. Pushkin wrote several critical and journalistic articles and essays and about 30 verses.
