Описание

"White Nights" is the third major Dostoyevsky short story everyone should read, "A Faint Heart" and "The Christmas Tree & Wedding" being the other two. This is a series of Winesburg, Ohio like moments where a woman and man meet accidentally on the First Night; proceed to meet again on the Second and Third, almost fall in love, and at the last minute the former lover of the woman returns to take her away. But, the point is the man had a moment, a glorious moment, for the first time in his life when he had something special. Was that enough? That is the final question the author leaves us with.

    "My night ended with the morning"The narrator is a lonely, incorregible dreamer who meets and falls in love with a young woman during one of his nightly walks in St Petersburg. The problem is that she is betrothed to another man, who left for Moscow a year earlier and who is imminently due to return with a marriage proposal. Over the course of a few nights, the protagonists bare their soul to each other. This chance encounter will change the life of both of them. Like Goethe’s Werther, Dostoyevsky’s narrator is an inherently tragic figure who would probably find little sympathy in the cynical world we live in. The same can be said for the prose, which might seem overindulgent and overtly dramatic. But what an enjoyable read for nostalgic romantics!

    A portuguese translation of Bélie Nótchi, this short story is really a much too romantic literary piece of work for my taste, but being very short one can finish it quite quickly...

    Early Dostoevsky. Main character is very recognizable; the ending is surprisingly comical (of course it is also very sad). Might work as a Hollywood movie.

    In this Danish translation the volume includes White Nights, The Landlady and A Little Hero - two novellas and one short story. The two novellas are in a way portraits of Dostoevskys typical “hero”. Young, poor, lonely, hypersensitive men, with deep longings and itching with restlessness.Both in White Nights and The Landlady the young men are falling in love with women who are already engaged (White Night) or married (The Landlady). White Night is poetic and beautifully written, The Landlady mystical and deeply psychological.Reading Dostoevsky work is a challenge but also rewarding. Not easy litterature, but I’m amazed at how strong an impression his stories have on me is.

    A beautiful story about unrequited love.

    Only the second work I've read by Dostoyevky(the first was "A Little Hero"), and both were interesting portrayals of individuals trough simple social settings. This one created more of a resonance with me, particularly in the description of the "dreamer".
    What surprised me the most is the way Dostoyevsky pushes the feelings of romance to almost unbearable(and unrealistic) plateaus, and yet retains it firmly subsided and believable.

    A great read.

    Two short writings from Dostoyevsky. Melancholy, passion, pain and black humour with the eyes of a genius.

    My God, a moment of bliss. Why, isn't that enough for a whole lifetime?

    White Nights is a sense-stirring cocktail of human failure. Leave it to Uncle Fyodor to delver such a wrenching tale of humiliation, albiet one splashed with a chance love and a lather of anguished poetry Insomniacs gather like moths. Chivalry and hormones lead to an effusion of dialogue. Maybe one should erect a filter when cold-calling pedestrians ambling along the Neva. Slinking slyly, the mad couple burst into tears and nearly wet themselves with serial about-faces. You just have to dig that.

    Beautiful psychological and philosophical portray of love and lovers in a dilemma
