Fyodor Dostoyevsky

It was a wonderful night, such a night as is only possible when we are young, dear reader. The sky was so starry, so bright that, looking at it, one could not help asking oneself whether ill-humoured and capricious people could live under such a sky. That is a youthful question too, dear reader, very youthful, but may the Lord put it more frequently into your heart!... Speaking of capricious and ill-humoured people, I cannot help recalling my moral condition all that day. From early morning I had been oppressed by a strange despondency. It suddenly seemed to me that I was lonely, that every one was forsaking me and going away from me. Of course, any one is entitled to ask who "every one" was. For though I had been living almost eight years in Petersburg I had hardly an acquaintance. But what did I want with acquaintances? I was acquainted with all Petersburg as it was; that was why I felt as though they were all deserting me when all Petersburg packed up and went to its summer villa.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky

From the author of Crime and Punishment comes this remarkable collection of short fiction. A selection of ten compelling tales, steeped in Dostoyevsky’s characteristic themes of spiritual torment and psychological struggle, evoke life in Czarist Russia. Featured stories include “The Dream of a Ridiculous Man,” “Bobok,” “An Honest Thief,” “An Unpleasant Predicament,” “Another Man’s Wife,” “The Peasant Marey,” “The Crocodile,” “A Faint Heart,” “A Christmas Tree and a Wedding,” and the title work. Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821 - 1881) created powerful depictions of the human condition that led to significant developments in twentieth-century thought, including psychoanalysis and existentialism. His influence resonates in the works of latter-day authors such as Proust, Faulkner, Hemingway, and Kafka. This collection of his short stories offers thought-provoking glimpses into the Russian author’s moving portrayals of the conflict between flesh and spirit.

How is this book unique? Font adjustments & biography included Unabridged (100% Original content) Illustrated About White Nights and Other Stories by Fyodor Dostoyevsky "White Nights" is a story by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, originally published in 1848, early in the writer's career. Like many of Dostoyevsky's stories, "White Nights" is told in first person by a nameless narrator; the narrator is living in Saint Petersburg and suffers from loneliness. He gets to know and falls in love with a young woman, but the love remains unrequited as the woman misses her lover with whom she is finally reunited. The story is divided into six sections: First Night The story opens with a quotation from the poem "The Flower" by Ivan Turgenev: "And was it his destined part Only one moment in his life To be close to your heart? Or was he fated from the start to live for just one fleeting instant, within the purlieus of your heart." The narrator describes his experience walking in the streets of St. Petersburg. He loves the city at night time, in which he feels comfortable. He no longer feels comfortable during the day because all of the people he was used to seeing are not there. He drew his emotions from there. If they were happy, he was happy. If they were despondent, he was despondent. He felt alone when seeing new faces. He also knew the houses. As he strolled down the streets they would talk to him and tell him how they were being renovated or painted a new color or being torn down. He lives alone in a small apartment in Saint Petersburg with only his older, non-social maid Matryona to keep him company. He tells the story of his relationship with a young girl called Nastenka (a diminutive of the name Anastasia). He first sees her standing against a railing while crying. He becomes concerned and considers asking what's wrong but eventually steels himself to continue walking. There is something special about her and he is very curious. When he hears her scream, he intervenes and saves her from a man who is harassing her.
