Alexander Pushkin

1 comment:

  1. The most scandalous book in Russian literature - "Secret Journal 1836-1837" by A. S. Pushkin.
    This literary masterpiece is already published in 24 COUNTRIES.
    We have published first Russian and then English edition in 1986. Since first Moscow edition in 2001 there were three more editions in Russia including the bilingual English-Russian one.

    The famous Russian poet and writer Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837), fatally wounded in a duel by his brother-in-law and rival, left a secret, ciphered journal, which was discovered and smuggled out of the USSR in 1976 by the Russian author Mikhail Armalinsky. There has been a lot of speculation and mystery surrounding this journal. According to legend, Pushkin's will stipulated that the journal not be published until 100 years after his death. Some people claimed that the Journal never existed at all.
    The Journal does exist and consists of explicit confessions about intimate relationships that Pushkin had with his wife, her two sisters, and other women, which brought him to his tragic end. These astonishing events and reflections reveal an unknown details of Pushkin's life - the life of a nineteenth century Russian Don Juan.
