The poem "The Tale of the Fisherman and the Fish" was written by Alexander Pushkin in 1833. One day, and old fisherman catches a small golden fish in his net. The fish begs him to let it go free, promising the man anything he wishes in return. The fisherman obliges and goes home to his wife, who starts making demands of the magical fish.
