Publisher's Summary

Poor Folk, Dostoyevsky's first great literary triumph, inspired by the works of Gogol, Pushkin, and Karamzin as well as English and French authors, is written in the form of letters between the two main characters, Makar Devushkin and Varvara Dobroselova, who are poor second cousins.
The novel showcases the life of poor people, their relationship with rich people, and poverty in general, all common themes of literary naturalism. A deep but odd friendship develops between them until Dobroselova loses her interest in literature and later in communicating with Devushkin after a rich widower, Mr. Bykov, proposes to her.
This audiobook features a full cast radio drama performance in the Russian language. Makar Devushkin is played by Vladimir Andreyev, Varvara Dobroselova by Anna Kamenkova. Directed by Arkadiy Abakumov. Music by Shandor Kallosh. Audio Production by Andrey Konovalov.
