The Captain's Daughter is a historical novel by the Russian writer Alexander Pushkin. It was first published in 1836 in the fourth issue of the literary journal Sovremennik. Pyotr Andreyich Grinyov (the narrative is conducted on his behalf) is the only surviving child of a retired army officer. When Pyotr turns 17, his father sends him into military service in Orenburg

The Captain’s Daughter can even be read as a discussion of the future direction of Russian literature. The divide between A History of Pugachov and The Captain’s Daughter is another expression of this same split.

The Captain’s Daughter can even be read as a discussion of the future direction of Russian literature. Pyotr has two tutors: one Russian and one French. In the former, Pushkin takes the viewpoint of the educated elite, subordinating himself to documented fact and portraying Pugachov as treacherous and sadistic; in the latter, he shows us the magnanimous Pugachov of popular legend and allows us a glimpse of life as it might be if we could learn to give and to forgive, if we could learn to enter one.

An escape from the searing, rust-laden hotbed that was their country

An escape from the searing, rust-laden hotbed that was their country. Such were the thoughts embedded in the minds of Filipinos who yearned to follow the tens of thousands of American servicemen who had boarded cruisers bound for "the States" after the surrender of Japan. A young Filipino who idolized Americans from the GIs who recaptured his hometown, to Frank Sinatra and his role in the film "Anchors Aweigh" yearned to travel abroad.

A young Filipino who idolized Americans - from the GIs who recaptured his hometown, to Frank Sinatra and his role in the film "Anchors Aweigh" - yearned to travel abroad. To some, happiness lay far away from this island country, across an endless ocean of dreams and perceptions and amid the cherry red Mustangs, movie debuts, and white picket fences of America. Like thousands of other young Filipinos of the time, Ray scrambled from Sangley Point on the island of Luzon to enlist in the U.S. Coast Guard. Seven and a half years later, he found himself in an enviable position, a place of privilege where many of the thousands of other Filipino "swabbees" wished to be, as a steward to the Group Commander of the U.S. Coast Guard Base in New York City.

Real life, but as an enlisted Coasty myself, knew the PO 3rd was headed for trouble dating a 4 stripers daughter. She in turn loved him, but Dad's orders are orders. Maybe one who never sailed with Stewards wouldn't see the gulf, but my years at sea did.

As with many young men and women, joining the US services in search for worldly experiences may have been his primary reason to enlist.

However, Mr. Burdeos's candid account of his struggle as a young man in the US Coast Guard courting the Captain's daughter and the events that unfolded before him, events of which most have only experienced through movies, provide the stage for an utterly captivating and nostalgic story of lost love, life altering choices, and ultimately, of the uncontrollable forces that change the course of our lives.

Not only did Mr. Burdeos needed to overcome the cultural barriers of interracial dating in the 1950-60s, which at the time would have been its own colossal challenge, but he had to battle the social -economical as well as the military institutional order of things.

Alas, it turns out that our tragic hero does venture into this romantic rendezvous with the lovely daughter in spite of all he would have lost once they were discovered.

The trials and tribulations of the ordeal is revealed in an adorable and simple fashion, perhaps indicative of a simpler time when love should have been enough.

In this day of freedom and cultural acceptance, this unlikely union would still have been a feat in itself; I salute Mr. Burdeos for his passion, and his courage, but most of all, his ability to love.
