Piotr, or Peter the Great. Illustrious Tsar, or voracious bloodthirsty. This novel retraces the epic journey of a surprising character, from fallacious victories to historic conquests, through the mad ambitions that brought Russia into the modernity of the eighteenth century. Benefactor and assassin, inspired visionary and executioner, lover and traitor, such is Klabund's description of the mighty Russian emperor. A masterpiece.
