Nice collection of Garnett translations May 5 2009
By Timothy Wheeler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for the short story "An Honest Thief". Contrary to the review of R. Brandly, I must say that this book is of standard paperback quality and is worth every penny. There is a table of contents, which lists the following:

An Honest Thief
An Unpleasant Predicament
Another Man's Wife
The Peasant Marey
The Crocodile
Bobok
The Dream of a Ridiculous Man
White Nights
A Christmas Tree and a Wedding
A Faint Heart

All of these stories are translated by Constance Garnett. Although serious Dostoyevsky scholars tend to be critical of Garnett's work, I find these translations to be enjoyable to read. My only complaint is that Dover didn't include more of Dostoyevky's work (e.g., "Novel in Nine Letters", "Mr. Prokharchin"). At only 256 pages, it seems that there is room for a few more. However, given the extremely low price of this book, I still give it five stars.

Great Edition of Dostoyevsky's Short Stories June 12 2009
By T. Brewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought the book new from amazon and will say that the poor reviews of this book are not true. The book has a Table of Contents, Headings, and page numbers. It is not a "raw scan" or a "lump of words." Worth the money for short works from one of the greatest Russian authors.
Dostoyevsky had a sense of humor?? May 3 2014
By A. Simon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Dostoyevsky is one of my favorite writers, a psychological writer, a political, anti-totalitarian writer, his most famous work being the masterpiece Crime and Punishment.
This edition brings together ten of his short stories, of varying lengths. His most famous, most popular short story is the surrealistic Crocodile. As far as style, it is ahead of its time, anticipating the genre of “magical realism.” It is about a man who is swallowed whole by a crocodile that is on exhibition. Instead of dying, her remains alive inside the animal and communicates freely with persons outside the reptile. As with so many of his characters the victim pompously gives forth utopian theories that all must adhere to.
Crocodile, Bobok, and Another Man’s Wife shows that Dostoyevsky had a great sense of humor, something that seems to be out of character for those who are acquainted with his tragic novels and his equally tragic life. In this, he is like Edgar Allan Poe, who is famous for his Gothic stories and his tragic life, but who also had a great sense of humor. With both men, the tragedy has tended to eclipse the humor.
Another characteristic of Dostoyevsky that one finds both in his novels and in the short stories, White Night, An Unpleasant Predicament, A faint heart and An Honest thief is the ambivalence of some of his characters; they go back and forth in intent as to their plan of action, or of their feelings.
As to this volume, I heartily recommend these literary tidbits. They are thoroughly stimulating and enjoyable. And, as with all of Dover publications, the price is a bargain.

Just got this book from the library and it was published in 1923. Same translator. Wonder if this shouldn't be disclosed when selling the book.

A nice collection of short work by Dostoyevsky. I still prefer his longer works, but his short fiction is entertaining and well written as well.
