About this product
- DescriptionAround 1705, an African boy from the seraglio of the Turkish sultan, was taken to Russia as a gift to Peter the Great. He was to become the great-grandfather of the poet, Alexander Pushkin. It is the contention of the editors that Pushkin's African ancestry has played the role of a wild card as a formative element in Russian cultural mythology.
