Our latest book "The Queen of Spades and Other Stories" (Folio Society) includes other important short stories and novels written by Alexander Pushkin. Two interior illustrations are dedicated to the famous historical novel "The Captain's Daughter" 1836.
Pyotr is thinking the beautiful Masha (The Captain's Daughter)
"The flame of love grew stronger in my isolation and became more and more trying". 
We imagined the unhappiness of love like a candle that burns.
The candle has the appearance of a woman: Masha.
An uninvited guest (The Captain's Daughter)
Masha is lying on the bed in the Priest House and Pugachev is looking at her.
"he pulled back the curtain and looked in with those hawk's eyes of his!"
The new edition is now available on the site:
