All the varied pieces in this volume share Pushkin's verve and light touch. There isn't one of them that isn't fascinating and highly enjoyable - none have the feeling of having been translated just to fill in the gaps around Penguin's 'Queen of Spades' volume. The introduction by John Bayley is thorough and really brings out the qualities of the writing as well as setting each of them in context. The notes are informative. All that's missing is a map for the 'Journey to Arzrum'.

Puskin’s ‘tales of the late Ivan Petrovich Belkin’ are beautifully presented in this Penguin Classic, introduced by John Bayley and translated by Ronald Wilks. Here you will find Pushkin’s memorable tales: ‘The Shot’, ‘The Blizzard’, ‘The Undertaker’, ‘The Postmaster’, ‘The Squire’s Daughter’, ‘The History of the Village of Goryukhino’, ‘Rostavlev’, ‘Kirdzhali: a tale’, ‘Egyptian Nights’ and ‘A Journey to Arzrum at the time of the 1829 Campaign’. Fantastic!

When I started this collection i was finding it a little light and not entirely engaging, but as I continued I felt that Pushkins voice became clearer and I warmed to the book alot more.
