Annotation

Dubrovsky is the son of a landowner whose property has been confiscated by a corrupt and malicious General. After his father dies, and his faithful servants burn his ancestral house to the ground, Dubrovsky turns to crime. But to achieve his ultimate aim of avenging his father, he must resort to subtler means than banditry. Masquerading as a French tutor, he enters the General's house and inveigles himself into the affections of the General's daughter...Asking hard questions of our faith in social institutions, in particular the law, Pushkin's novel demonstrates the storytelling skill of Russia's greatest poet.
