USD $ 1,99
In this unique edition we present 7 novellas by Dostoyevsky, including two of his most famous works "White Nights" and "Notes From the Underground": "White Nights" is told in the first person by a nameless narrator, a young man living in Saint Petersburg who suffers from loneliness. He describes his experience walking in the streets of St. Petersburg. He loves the city at night, and feels comfortable in it. He no longer feels comfortable during the day because all the people he is used to seeing are not there. He drew his emotions from them: if they were happy, he was happy; if they were despondent, he was despondent. New faces made him feel alone. As he walked, the houses would talk to him and tell him how they were being renovated or painted a new color or being torn down. At one point he meets a young woman called Nastenka. He first sees her standing against a railing, crying. He becomes concerned and considers asking her what is wrong, but eventually continues walking. There is something special about her and he is very curious. The novella "Notes from Underground" presents itself as an excerpt from the rambling memoirs of a bitter, isolated, unnamed narrator (generally referred to by critics as the Underground Man), who is a retired civil servant living in St. Petersburg.
