This novel is the first prose work of the great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837). It was written in 1827-1828 and first published in 1837. The novel begins with a portrait of the manners and morals of French society in the first quarter of 18th century, with Ibrahim's life in Paris, his success in society, and his love affair with a countess. However, "summoned both by Peter [the Great] and by his own vague sense of duty," Ibrahim returns to Russia.
