Presentation1.354 Words / ~ pages Universität Wien - Alma Mater Rudolphina Fate of the “Storm” The Tales of the Late Ivan Petrovich Belkin is a set of five short stories written by Aleksandr Pushkin during Puskin’­s immensely productive Boldino Autumn of 1830. The second story of the series, “The Snowstorm” (“Metel­̵­7;” in Russian), follows a Romeo and Juliet-type of love story set in barren Russia. Using this model, Pushkin establishes a typical tale of the Romantic Era using various clichés of such writing. At the same time, however, Pushkin cuts down these expectations of a Romantic story through a series of surprising events. The story itself, however, offers a deeper message from Pushkin, as he uses the storm of the story as a representatio­n for fate. How one deals with fate and how that relates to preconceived restraints of society quickly becomes the central…[show more]
