"The Captain's Daughter"
This lecture is devoted to The Captain's Daughter by Alexander Pushkin. Motifs resembling those of The Bronze Horseman are focused on (the mighty welter, insoluble conflicts). The history of Yaik Cossacks is covered. The short novel composition is analysed. A particular type of narration is combined here with a particular type of plot following a fairytale pattern. The character traits of both Ivan the Prince and Ivan the Fool can be distinguished in Pyotr Grinyov. Alexander Pushkin is compared to Sir Walter Scott. Pushkin's ideal concept of state and man is analysed.
