Críticas:

Robert and Elizabeth Chandler’s translation reads wonderfully . . . and captures the plot’s wildness, cruelty, and touching romance.

(Jonathan Mirsky, The Spectator)

Oh, how thoroughly is that classical book—magical. How thoroughly—hypnotic . . . Pushkin has brought Pugachev on us . . . the way you bring on sleep, a fever, a spell.

(Marina Tsvetaeva, “Pushkin and Pugachev”)

In any language, The Captain’s Daughter would be a miniature masterpiece.

(T. J. Binyon, The Daily Telegraph)

Time has done nothing to dull the excitement of the story, which, for all its romantic coincidences, is something more than a mere tale of adventure because its characters are something more than cardboard.

(The New York Times)

One brilliant feature of The Captain’s Daughter is that you don’t know what sort of narrative is unfolding.... It is a baffled reflection, from the position of political enlightenment, on the extraordinary hold exercised by violence and fanaticism upon the human race.

(A. N. Wilson, The Daily Telegraph)

The Captain’s Daughter is one of the stories in which Pushkin created Russian prose.... It is true poet’s prose, absolutely clear, objective, unpretentious and penetrating.

(Robert Conquest, The Spectator)

Pushkin’s greatest stories include the famous supernatural tale ‘The Queen of Spades’ and the thrilling historical novel about the Pugachev rebellion, The Captain’s Daughter. Everyone should read these.

(Michael Dirda, The Washington Post)

“[I]n any language, The Captain’s Daughter would be a miniature masterpiece.”

(T. J. Binyon, The Daily Telegraph)

“One brilliant feature of The Captain’s Daughter is that you don’t know what sort of narrative is unfolding.... It is a baffled reflection, from the position of political enlightenment, on the extraordinary hold exercised by violence and fanaticism upon the human race.”

(A. N. Wilson, The Daily Telegraph)

“First published in 1836, this novella shows Alexander Pushkin’s mastery of almost any form.... Evocative, swashbuckling, romantic and sentimental, The Captain’s Daughter centres on the peasant rebellion, 1773–75, of the Cossack Yemelyan Pugachov.... Robert and Elizabeth Chandler’s translation reads wonderfully (caution: I know no Russian), and captures the plot’s wildness, cruelty, and touching romance.”

(Jonathan Mirsky, The Spectator)

Reseña del editor:

An NYRB Classics Original

Alexander Pushkin’s short novel is set during the reign of Catherine the Great, when the Cossacks rose up in rebellion against the Russian empress. Presented as the memoir of Pyotr Grinyov, a nobleman, The Captain’s Daughter tells how, as a feckless youth and fledgling officer, Grinyov was sent from St. Petersburg to serve in faraway southern Russia. Traveling to take up this new post, Grinyov loses his shirt gambling and then loses his way in a terrible snowstorm, only to be guided to safety by a mysterious peasant. With impulsive gratitude Grinyov hands over his fur coat to his savior, never mind the cold.

Soon after he arrives at Fort Belogorsk, Grinyov falls in love with Masha, the beautiful young daughter of his captain. Then Pugachev, leader of the Cossack rebellion, surrounds the fort. Resistance, he has made it clear, will be met with death.

At once a fairy tale and a thrilling historical novel, this singularly Russian work of the imagination is also a timeless, universal, and very winning story of how love and duty can summon pluck and luck to confront calamity.
