    1. Πολύ ωραίο ανάγνωσμα! Δεν θα αναφερθώ σε περιλήψεις των διηγηματων, αυτές υπαρχουν κ στο οπισθόφυλλο. Θα γραψω μονάχα τον λόγο που αξίζει καποιος να διαβασει Fyodor: για να ερθει σε επαφή με την ηθική κ την πραγματικότητα του συγγραφέα. Αριστη σκιαγραφιση των χαρακτηρων, επηρε [...]

    2. It was a truly strange book to read. I was not expecting such Tarantino-esque narrative from Dostoyevsky. Its probably the most explicit of his stories, and for good reason. One can't expect a 20 page story to be as subtle as a 800 page novel. The stories in this collection are urgent, straight to the point and perhaps even romantic. an Adequate, quick read with a pinch of ideology. Great for a lazy afternoon

    3. A "lighter" work by Dostoyevsky, that contains three small stories, about love, human relationships, the development of one's character, and the history of human society. The stories are interesting, with fast paced action, few characters, food for thought and unconventional endings. The story "a gentle creature" was a nice one, about the relationship between two spouces who were almost strangers to one another. The way it was presented was interesting, with the main character narrating the stor [...]

    4. "If in the first act you have hung a pistol on the wall, then in the following one it should be fired."Two of the three stories in this well chosen collection prove Chekov decisively wrong. If you have mastered human psychology and looked deep into the human soul like Dostoyevsky then the pistol can appear but its hammer does not need even to be cocked.All three stories are about dreams and dreamers. Dreams are extremely strange things which, in and of themselves, are only dreams so are neither [...]

    5. I Loved this book! Analysis of the short stories from this book:1st.)A Nasty Story (1862)The maintenance of the story spoke to me with an irresistible farce and I expected laughter, but it did not happen.It is indeed a farce, but it's from the cold humor. It is caustic impertinence, not fat laugh. Do not expect the maximum joke (shame on me) but it is even more terrible.Although I had some difficulties with the names of the protagonists, unable to recognize though initially and obliged, therefor [...]

    6. Το παρόν βιβλίο περιλαμβάνει τρεις αυτόνομες μικρές ιστορίες με διαφορετικούς πρωταγωνιστές και πλοκή, περιέχοντας όμως όλες το στοιχείο του ονείρου. Ο Dostoyevsky καταφέρνει μέσα σε λίγες σελίδες να παρουσιάσει ολοκληρωμένους και αληθοφανείς χαρακτήρες, όπως επίσης να σκιαγ [...]

    7. A Partial Excuse For My Misanthropy. Part One. 1) I am awestruck when I meet a new person. I babble to overcompensate for the feelings of respect I have for this person who is alive, like me, and who lives a life, like me. 2) I like people! 3) Then something happens. The more I speak to the person I have met who is brilliant, the more I start to realise how profoundly not brilliant they are. How ordinary. How like me. 4) All those wonderful words they used when we first met, like “hello” and [...]

    8. “A Submissa e Outras Histórias” coleciona uma série de contos de Dostoievski que demonstram, acima de tudo, duas características do autor que julgo serem pouco discutidas e apontadas: a sua versatilidade e o seu humor. São duas características que habitualmente não são atribuídas a Dostoievski, provavelmente devido ao facto de os seus trabalhos mais conhecidos serem obras monumentais e trágicas, com um crítico e temerário olhar sobre as grandes questões sociais, morais e filosóf [...]

    9. A Gentle Creature is a collection of three short stories by Dostoyevsky: "White Nights," "A Gentle Creature," and "The Dream of a Ridiculous Man." Taken together, these three stories are representative of many of the themes Dostoyevsky explores in his novels. In "White Nights," the protagonist is a solitary man who has never spoken to a woman, and rarely speaks to anyone at all. One evening on his ritual walk, he encounters a young woman weeping and they form a brief nightly friendship. In "A Ge [...]

    11. "dreams of a ridiculous man" will change your life. it's what was inside my brain as a little kid all the time. i felt comfort and awe in delving into dostoyevsky's heavy, haunting, and touching 20-odd pages of this story.white nights and notes from the underground are also two other huge favorites i read the same year.

    12. This little book, translated by Alan Myers, collects three of Dostoevsky’s short works on the subject of the "dreamer"—one early piece, the classic 1848 novella "White Nights," and two pieces of the 1870s, first published in D.’s Diary of a Writer: "A Gentle Creature" and "The Dream of the Ridiculous Man." This allows a fascinating juxtaposition of the writer’s early and late styles. Spoilers below."White Nights." I have been meaning to read this one for a long time, and somehow never go [...]

    13. Seems to be didactic literature rather like a Russian version of Dickens. The editor collects three stories on a similar theme, White Nights, A Gentle Creature, and A Dream of a Ridiculous Man. All of the narrators suffer from similar flaws: they are either dreamers, utopians or corrupted by pride. The meaning of the stories seems to be that these individuals could absolve themselves by learning compassion. While this is a universal truth, it seems a little vague and trite. Dostoevsky probably u [...]

    14. λατρεύω τα διηγήματα του dostoyevsky. κ αυτό γιατί καταφέρνει να εξελίσσει τους χαρακτήρες του ακόμα και σε μικρή έκταση, καθιστώντας τους πολύπλευρους και πάνω απ όλα ρεαλιστικούς. οι λευκές νύχτες αφορούν έναν ανεκπλήρωτο έρωτα, και είναι διήγημα βουτηγμένο στη μελαγχολία. ο [...]

    15. I really enjoyed these three novellas. "White Nights" is about a chance meeting, about a man who lives with his head in the clouds and a woman waiting for her beloved to return his affections after a year's absence. I loved how the turn of events in this novella was so realistic and truthful, instead of contrived such as we tend to be used to as a reader. "A Gentle Creature" is a monologue of a man whose wife has just died. His thoughts churn around and around in his head, and he tries everythin [...]

    16. “A Submissa e Outras Histórias” de Fiódor Dostoiévski inclui as seguintes “histórias”: “Uma história dos diabos”, “Apontamentos de Inverno sobre impressões de Verão”, “O crocodilo”, “Bobok”, “Menino numa festa de Natal”, “O Mujique Marei”, “A centenária”, “A submissa - história fantástica”, e o “Sonho de um homem ridículo - conto fantástico”. Apesar de bastantes diferentes entre si, estes contos e pequenas novelas ilustram bem o génio de D [...]

    17. Russian literature in the form of short stories - I can not fathom what one could ask more of from this world?! At long last, I can now say that I have read the work of all the great Russian writers; Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Gogol and Ivan Tugrenev. Sadly though, I had probably thought way too highly of Dostoevsky as to incur a slight sense of disappointment (as is usual when approaching anything with high expectations), but nevertheless I did greatly enjoy his work.What strikes me as the most impre [...]

    18. The translation is current and the introduction and notes are informative. "The chief thing is to love others as oneself, that's the main thing, and that's it - absolutely nothing more is necessary: you would immediately discover how to bring it about. And yet it's just the old truth after all - an old truth a billion times repeated and preached, though it fell on stony ground, didn't it? The cognition of life is superior to life, the knowledge of the laws of happiness - superior to happiness! - [...]

    19. These three short stories appear in a totally accessible translation. Love, loss, suicide, utopia, isolation - it's all here and it is completely relevant still.

    20. Even though the first story was, to me, quite meaningless, the second and especially the third one blew my mind away. I cannot even say why, but I was enraptured.

    21. I started reading this book mainly because I've been wanting to read The Dream of a Ridiculous Man for quite some time. Turns out, it was the other two short stories that I found interesting.The Dream is about a man who is on the verge of suicide, but on the night he decides to kill himself, he falls asleep, dreams of a "perfect" world and realizes how simple it is to achieve such a world just by following one rule - not one magic rule, mind you, this wasn't an internet banner ad. I won't give a [...]

    22. Uma História dos Diabos: A premissa é interessante e o desenvolvimento também. Pena a história ser interrompida com inúmeras explicações e divagações.

    24. The first story, White Nights, is a dreamy, clearly delineated account of an intense and fleeting love. I thought about the Wire, "You want it to be one waybut it's the other way."Dostoyevsky apparently wrote A Gentle Creature after reading a news story about a seamstress who jumped out of a window, icon in hand: "a meek suicide" that "keeps haunting you for a long time." Sums it up pretty well - this is a super creepy story, with a narrator whose relentless self-absorption fails to yield any se [...]

    25. Three stories in this Fyodor Dostoyevsky sampler. 'White Nights' was written in the 1840's and can be considered an early work which was not very successful. I found it overly romantic. It hints at a suicide which is a theme in all these tales.'A Gentle Creature' (1876) is a more mature and interesting multi-themed story, which ends in a suicide and 'The Dream of a Ridiculous Man' (1877) is a far more fantastic composition than the latter two, and here, Dostoyevsky begins with a suicide. Certain [...]
