Established in 1831, first published in 1832. It is known that Pushkin originally wanted to write stories alternate with prose poems, but later dropped the idea.  "The Tale of Tsar Saltan" - freestyle handling folk tale, which was written by Pushkin in two different ways. The author did not follow exactly either of them, free to amend and supplement the story, while retaining the national character of the content. The long title of the story mimics the popular title in the XVIII century lubok narratives. "The Tale of Tsar Saltan" is written chetyrehstopnym trochee with the pair rhyme: in those days, so often written "imitation" of folk poetry.
