A Hero of Our Time by Mikhail Lermontov

"BELA"

"I was travelling post from Tiflis" [along the Georgian Military Highway]

"What a delightful place, that valley!"

". . . below, the Aragva river, infolding another, nameless river. . . ."

"We could already distinguish the post station, as well as the roofs of the Caucasian huts. . ."

 

"the road seemed to lead up into the sky because, as far as the eye could see, it kept ascending and, finally, it lost itself in the cloud. . . ."

 

"MAKSIM MAKSIMICH"

"[there] followed . . . an empty travelling calash; there was a foreign touch about its easy ride, comfortable arrangement and smart appearance."

"TAMAN"

"we drove up to a shanty on the very edge of the sea"

"PRINCESS MARY"

"'This Princess Mary is extremely pretty,' I said to him."

All drawings by Mikhail Lermontov.
