The Captain's Daughter by Alexander Pushkin
The Captain's Daughter (Kapitanskaya dochka)- historical novel written by Alexander Pushkin. It is a common knowledge that the poetry of Alexander Pushkin cannot be translated well. Thats why Pushkin is not so famous abroad as Dostoevsky and Tolstoy. But there are some novels, written in prose, that are worth reading to understand the great gift of the greatest Russian national poet.
Golden Age of Russian Poetry
The sparkling term Golden Age is referred to the first half, or to be more exact, the first forty years of the 19th century. This period is remarkable for an unprecedented upsurge of creativity illuminated by the genius of Alexander Pushkin. It was the poetry of the early 19th century that turned to be the impetus, which still goes on driving Russian literature forth
Silver Age of Russian Poetry
With the end of the 19th century the Golden Age of Russian literature finished giving place to a crucial stage that later went down into history under the beautiful name of the Silver Age. It engendered a great flight of Russian culture, at the same time becoming a beginning of its tragic fall down.
Great Reforms and 19th Century Literature of Realism
Unusual flourishing of Russian realistic literature in the second half of the 19th century was going on against the background of social and political distemper that started in the 1840s, under the reign of Nicholas I (18251855).
Romanticism and 19th Century Literature
The first forty years of the 19th century are called the Golden Age of Russian poetry, and it is certainly due to the greatest Russian poet Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin (17991837), whose first triumph was the poem Ruslan and Lyudmila (1820).
