Publication[ edit ] This skaz was first published in the several issues of the Sverdlovsk newspaper Na Smenu! Tjatino podarenje , but the title was changed prior to publication. Nastasya becomes the owner of the Malachite Casket , filled with jewellery, which Stepan got from the legendary Mistress of the Copper Mountain. Only Tanyushka likes to play with the Casket, and every piece of jewellery looks good on her. With black hair and green eyes, Tanyushka does not look like her mother at all, as if she was born to different parents.

Her appearance resembles that of the Mistress of the Copper Mountain. A female vagabond comes to their house and stays for a while, teaching Tanyushka silk embroidering. One day, when the woman is alone with Tanyushka, the girl shows her the jewellery from the Malachite Casket, and in return the woman shows her a vision of a beautiful room decorated with malachite. Before she leaves, she presents the girl with a small button for a "remembrance".

Meanwhile Tanyushka grows up. People start calling her "a stone statue". Nastasya blames this behaviour on the vagabond "sorceress". One day a tragedy occurs in the family: the house is burned to the ground. Nastasya has to sell the Malachite Casket. A lot of merchants are interested in the jewellery. At the same time, a new bailiff arrives at the factory.

He is quickly nicknamed "Flogger" Russian: Паротя, tr. Parotya because he always orders flagellation as a form of punishment. However she cannot wear the jewellery because every piece of it pains her. She asks various craftsmen to fix it for her, but all of them refuse to touch the gemstones, explaining that none of the masters is willing to quarrel with their maker and they were made to fit one person only.

When the old landlord dies, his son wants his mistress back. He tries to court the girl, but Tanyushka is very cold with him. When Tanyushka catches his eye, he forgets about his mistress. He buys the Casket from her and offers it to Tanyushka, but she refuses. Turchaninov then claims that he wishes to marry the girl. She announces that she will only agree to the marriage if he shows her the Tsarina herself at the Malachite Room in Saint Petersburg.

Turchaninov agrees. Dressed like a queen, Tanyushka arrives at the Palace , and walks directly to the Malachite Room. Tsarina enters the room, saying: "Now then, show me this nigh-handed maid". Upon hearing that Tanyushka frowns and says to Turchaninov: "What does this mean? She is never seen again, but the Mistress of the Copper Mountain gets a twin—people see two maids in malachite robes. Themes[ edit ] Most scholars agree that Tanyushka—literally or metaphorically—is the daughter of the Mistress of the Copper Mountain.

Yelena Prikazchikova commented that Tanyushka is a typical changeling , the child of the mountain spirit and the mortal. The magical malachite was used for simple human needs, to decorate the imperial chambers, which displeases the Mistress on principle.

Therefore she tries in every possible way to demonstrate her power over it and makes the noble women cower before Tanyushka. It collides with the ordered factory world, and brings in randomness, variability, unpredictability and capriciousness.

Tanyushka are never completely "normal". Similar plot device can be found in "Two Lizards". During Soviet times, every edition of The Malachite Box was usually prefaced by an essay commenting on the creativity of the Ural miners, cruel landlords, social oppression and the "great workers unbroken by the centuries of slavery".
