Product Description

Review

He is a great story-teller, the Toby Litt of his day, you might say, and this translation knocks all the others I have seen (two) into a cocked hat. Terrific. (Nicholas Lezard, The Guardian)

The Queen of Spades is surely Pushkin's prose masterpiece, one of the greatest short stories ever written and the source of Tchaikovsky's opera. (The Irish Times (Dublin))

HASH(0x966a5d14) out of 5 stars Make sure the reviews correspond to the edition! 31 Aug. 2007
By David L. Shengold - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I wish to make it clear that the 2001 review published below when I was at Oberlin College is NOT of this Oxford World Classics edition-- with which I am unfamiliar-- but rather of a previous Dover Thrift Edition.

I am shocked that Amazon places reviews of different translated editions of the same title(s) interchangably.
