The Captain's Daughter, originally published in Sovremennik in 1836, is excerpted from the 1916 edition of his work, The Prose Tales of Alexander Poushkin, translated from the Russian by T. Keane. The story is a romanticized history of the Pugachev's Rebellion in 1773–1774. It wouldn't be a Pushkin story without a duel!
