New French translation of Alexander Pushkin's masterpiece "Tales of Belkin". According to Vladimir Nabokov these were "the first short stories written in Russian of a permanent aesthetic value". Masterfully translated, the paragon of clear and captivating prose, each of these stories can be read as a complete miniature drama, but also as part of a complex and ironic whole with multiple meanings.
