Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The shorter works of one of the world's greatest writers, including The Gambler and Notes from Underground

The short works of Dostoevsky exist in the very large shadow of his astonishing longer novels, but they too are among literature's most revered works. The Gambler chronicles Dostoevsky's own addiction, which he eventually overcame. Many have argued that Notes from Underground contains several keys to understanding the themes of the longer novels, such as Crime and Punishment and The Idiot.

Great Short Works of Fyodor Dostoevsky includes:

Notes from Underground
The Gambler
A Disgraceful Affair
The Eternal Husband
The Double
White Nights
A Gentle Creature
The Dream of a Ridiculous Man
