Tales of Belkin by Aleksandr Sergeevich Pushkin ( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ivan Petrovich Belkin left behind a great number of manuscripts...most of them, as Ivan Petrovich told me, were true stories heard from various people. First published anonymously in 1830, Alexander Pushkin's Tales of Belkin contains his first prose works. It is comprised of an introductory note and five linked stories, ostensibly collected by the scholar Ivan Belkin. The stories center variously around military figures, the wealthy, and businessmen; this beautiful novella gives a vivid portrait of nineteenth century Russian life. It has become, as well, one of the most beloved books in Russian literary history, and symbolic of the popularity of the novella form in Russia. In fact, it has become the namesake for Russia's most prestigious annual literary prize, the Belkin prize, given each year to a book voted by judges to be the best novella of the year

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Her mouth was almost pressed against his, and her words were like quick, hurried kisses: "You must absolutely go through with the duel tomorrow." An absorbing saga about the brutalities of military life upon its own soldiers. Stranded at a distant outpost, young Romashov finds himself obliged to fight a duel--over something he realizes is meaningless. As the novel hurtles toward a startling conclusion, it reveals itself to be a luminous depiction of the end of an era
