The Eternal Husband and Other Stories

(Pocket)
Beskrivning:

The Eternal Husband and Other Stories brings together five of Dostoevsky's short masterpieces rendered into English by two of the most celebrated Dostoevsky translators of our time. Filled with many of the themes and concerns central to his great novels, these short works display the full range of Dostoevsky's genius. The centerpiece of this collection, the short novel The Eternal Husband, describes the almost surreal meeting of a cuckolded widower and his dead wife's lover. Dostoevsky's dark brilliance and satiric vision infuse the other four tales with all-too-human characters, including a government official who shows up uninvited at an underling's wedding to prove his humanity; a self-deceiving narrator who struggles futilely to understand his wife's suicide; and a hack writer who attends a funeral and ends up talking with the dead.

The Eternal Husband and Other Stories is sterling Dostoevsky--a collection of emotional power and uncompromising insight into the human condition.
