Lermontov also published a short essay ''The Caucasian'' (1840; as in "someone from Caucasus", not "pale-faced"), wherein he more or less describes Maxim Maximich's BackStory (without any names). Additionally, ''[=AHoOT=]'' can be seen as a sequel to his unfinished novel ''Princess Ligovskaya'' (1838), which also features Grigory Pechorin (who may or [[InNameOnly may not]] be the same character) and is set in StPetersburg.

Added DiffLines:

* GenreSavvy: One layer of deconstruction in this novel is that Pechorin seems to recognize his own ByronicHero tendencies (in ''The Fatalist'', he even subtly compares himself to Creator/LordByron's romanticized image) and acts in accordance with or against them, depending on his mood.

* LifeImitatesArt: A duel between officers is a major plot point in the novel. Very soon, Lermontov himself will die in a duel with a fellow officer.

Added DiffLines:

* TheCasanova: Deconstructed. Pechorin is quite the ladies' man; however, he has a unique talent for wrecking the lives of the women he's involved with, and feeling little remorse for it.
