The drama "Masquerade" occupies a special place not only in the works of Lermontov, but also in the history of Russian drama of the first half of the XIX century. This emotionally rich, expressive, realistic play had repeatedly been censoring and, as a consequence, many copyright processing. Anger, jealousy, nagging doubts and anguish of the protagonist - Eugene Arbenina trying to resist the aristocratic mores of society and not daring to break its tradition - do not leave indifferent many generations of readers. In addition to dramatic works, the book also includes the novels by Mikhail Lermontov, known as "Vadim", "Stoss," "The Princess Ligovski" poem "Le Corsaire", "Angel of Death", the novel in verse.
