AS Pushkin was very interested in the role of randomness and predetermination in human life. He believed in rock, he knew that there are fatal circumstances that are beyond the will of man and his plans. His own life more than once gave him reason to think about what strange things fate depends on.
Many of Pushkin’s works are full of meditations about the incomprehensible game that the Creator leads with a man.
In the story “Blizzard” the author displays accentuated ordinary people who do not shine with the mind, talent, strength of spirit, and shows how the life can be whimsical if an unexplained and unforeseen accident interferes.
The heroes of “Snowstorm” are the county dreamy and sentimental young lady and the poor ensign who is on vacation.
Fate intervened again, allowing the heroes to meet in real life and love each other. This is an incredible alliance that began with a wedding, and continued after a few years of acquaintance, can be happy, in Pushkin’s opinion. A blizzard is a symbol of fate, that incomprehensible, bizarre and capricious player who holds the cards of our life in his hands.
