The Bronze Horseman

RUR 398

В наличии

Among the most famous works by the great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837) are his narrative poems

It tells the story of Ludmila, the daughter of Prince Vladimir of Kiev, who had been abducted by an evil wizard and of the brave knight Ruslan who tried to find and rescue her. Pushkin wrote The Bakchesarian Fountain A Tale of the Tauride published in 1824 after having visited the Fountain of Tears at the Khan Palace in Bakhchisaray in 1820

The Bronze Horseman is considered to be Pushkin's best-known narrative poem and is one of the reasons why he is called the founder of modern Russian literature. Its impact on Russian literature and culture altogether was so great that the equestrian statue of Peter the Great, which plays a dramatic role in the plot of the poem, became since then known as the Bronze Horseman. Ruslan and Ludmila published in 1820 is an epic fairy tale inspired by bylinas - the ancient Russian epic poems

The book we offer to attention of our readers contains three of them - The Bronze Horseman, Ruslan and Ludmila, and The Bakchesarian Fountain. The Bronze Horseman A Petersburg Tale was written in 1833, while the action takes place during the great flood of 1824

There he heard the legend of the 18th century telling that the famous fountain was placed by Khan Giray in honour of the Polish Princess whom he loved and whom Khan's concubine was jealous of.
