The POET AND THE TSAR: The Life and Times of Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin
By Michael Chase Walker
The world’s greatest literary genius vies against the brute hand of Tsar Nicholas for the affections of the most beautiful woman in Russia.
In an epic battle of inspiration against despotism, creativity versus censorship, and true love over obsessive possession, two of the greatest figures of the 19th century compete for the same woman, and the soul of Mother Russia.
The period is 1824 and a new Tsar rises to command imperial Russia. He is Nicholas, the cold, monarchial descendant of the 1,000 year reign of Romanovs. There is only one man more feared and that much more beloved. He is the father of Russian literature, and the grand scion of an Abyssinian prince.
He is the fiery prophet of freedom and creative genius. His name is Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin: Duelist, visionary, lover, poet, and revolutionary. Hearts and minds are at stake. The gloves are off. May the best man win.
