In pursuit of this aim, he becomes enamoured of the Countess' companion, the beautiful Lizaveta. A nocturnal visit to his paramour, however, turns to tragedy as he finds himself in the chamber of the Countess and tries first by persuasion and then by force to get her to reveal the secret of the cards. The denouement of the story is uncanny and captivating.

Pushkin's greatness ruined by narrator
The narrator uses a maddeningly staccato delivery over and over again, as if every 5th line or so is a punch line to a stand-up comedy routine.
I love Russian literature, but I found it near impossible to focus on the story given how annoying the narration was.
