L'imperatore, di pessimo umore per questioni amorose, compie dei giri d'ispezione e finisce per incrociare due soldati che, sfidando le regole, hanno deciso di andare a bere spensierati in una bettola. Tynjanov crea una serie di intrecci che hanno dell'assurdo, ma anche perfettamente senso all'interno della storia e riesce a rendere alla perfezione i caratteri dei due zar - guardingo e malfidato Paolo I, irascibile e rigido Nicola I - ma anche a ben caratterizzare gli altri personaggi e le situazioni che creano o in cui vengono a trovarsi, senza mai perdere quel tocco di ironia che impregna questo volumetto dalla prima pagina.
