The Folio Society in 1970 "Pushkin holds the supreme position in Russian Literature. it was his genius which created, in the fullest sense, a national literature, and which laid the foundations upon which that literature could subsequently be built. Until his emergence at the beginning of the nineteenth century, writing in Russia, with the exception of a handful of works, had been mainly imitative, pursuing pseudo-classical principles and reflecting closely the trends of various Western European cultures- French, in particular." The Queen of Spades is a short story with supernatural elements about human avarice. 1834. The Captain's Daughter was first published in 1836 in the fourth issue of the literary journal Sovremennik.
