This was my second book by Dostoyevsky, since falling in love with Crime and Punishment at the start of the year - I was a little worried that his short stories wouldn't excite me as much, but I enjoyed this collection very much. Highly recommended! May 8, 2015.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky was born on 11th November 1821. Dostoyevsky's mother died of tuberculosis. Read whenever, wherever. He was introduced to literature very early. At age three, it was heroic sagas, fairy tales and legends. Dostoyevsky and his brother were now enrolled at the Nikolayev Military Engineering Institute, their academic studies abandoned for military careers. Dostoyevsky disliked the academy, his interests were drawing and architecture. His father died on 16th June 1839 and perhaps triggered Dostoyevsky’s epilepsy.

White Nights and Other Stories by Fyodor Dostoyevsky is a compilation published in 1918 by The MacMillan Company, NY (USA) and Heinemann (UK). It contains these 7 works: - White Nights - Notes from the Underground - A Faint Heart - A Christmas Tree and a Wedding - Polzunkov - A Little Hero - Mr. Prohartchin.

I bought this book for the short story "An Honest Thief". All of these stories are translated by Constance Garnett. Although serious Dostoyevsky scholars tend to be critical of Garnett's work, I find these translations to be enjoyable to read. My only complaint is that Dover didn't include more of Dostoyevky's work (. "Novel in Nine Letters", "Mr. Prokharchin"). At only 256 pages, it seems that there is room for a few more.

  • I bought this book for the short story "An Honest Thief". Contrary to the review of R. Brandly, I must say that this book is of standard paperback quality and is worth every penny. There is a table of contents, which lists the following:

    An Honest Thief
    An Unpleasant Predicament
    Another Man's Wife
    The Peasant Marey
    The Crocodile
    Bobok
    The Dream of a Ridiculous Man
    White Nights
    A Christmas Tree and a Wedding
    A Faint Heart

    All of these stories are translated by Constance Garnett. Although serious Dostoyevsky scholars tend to be critical of Garnett's work, I find these translations to be enjoyable to read. My only complaint is that Dover didn't include more of Dostoyevky's work (e.g., "Novel in Nine Letters", "Mr. Prokharchin"). At only 256 pages, it seems that there is room for a few more. However, given the extremely low price of this book, I still give it five stars.

  • First of all, this is a great collection. It contains "Notes from the underground", one of Dostoyevsky's most famous pieces, and its worth it just for that.

    Second of all, dover thrift is AWESOME. Seriously, I love them so much. Everything is so ridiculously cheap plus prime eligible so free shipping?!?! Don't hesitate, just buy it, theres no need to think.

  • Dostoevsky is my favorite author. This is a timeless piece.

  • A nice collection of short work by Dostoyevsky. I still prefer his longer works, but his short fiction is entertaining and well written as well.

  • I love him. Any and all words.

  • This is basically a raw scan, with raw formatting left in, and without even an attempt at proofreading.

    It's unacceptable, and it should be taken off the list of Amazon items for sale.

  • Dostoyevsky is one of my favorite writers, a psychological writer, a political, anti-totalitarian writer, his most famous work being the masterpiece Crime and Punishment.
    This edition brings together ten of his short stories, of varying lengths. His most famous, most popular short story is the surrealistic Crocodile. As far as style, it is ahead of its time, anticipating the genre of “magical realism.” It is about a man who is swallowed whole by a crocodile that is on exhibition. Instead of dying, her remains alive inside the animal and communicates freely with persons outside the reptile. As with so many of his characters the victim pompously gives forth utopian theories that all must adhere to.
    Crocodile, Bobok, and Another Man’s Wife shows that Dostoyevsky had a great sense of humor, something that seems to be out of character for those who are acquainted with his tragic novels and his equally tragic life. In this, he is like Edgar Allan Poe, who is famous for his Gothic stories and his tragic life, but who also had a great sense of humor. With both men, the tragedy has tended to eclipse the humor.
    Another characteristic of Dostoyevsky that one finds both in his novels and in the short stories, White Night, An Unpleasant Predicament, A faint heart and An Honest thief is the ambivalence of some of his characters; they go back and forth in intent as to their plan of action, or of their feelings.
    As to this volume, I heartily recommend these literary tidbits. They are thoroughly stimulating and enjoyable. And, as with all of Dover publications, the price is a bargain.

  • Just got this book from the library and it was published in 1923. Same translator. Wonder if this shouldn't be disclosed when selling the book.
