Fyodor Dostoevsky masterfully blends realism and romanticism in this heartfelt tale of unrequited love and the human journey. Set in 19th-century St. Petersburg, "White Nights" is the story of a young man's inner conflict and how his feelings of discontent and loneliness draw him to a young woman who has been jilted by her lover. The lonely hearts come together in a sweet and tender bubble of sharing and romance, but will it last? Dostoevsky has a knack for weaving elements of realism and the human condition into tales that stay with you long after the story ends.
Also included in this collection are several other short stories.
"A Faint Heart" "A Christmas Tree and a Wedding" "Polzunkov" "A Little Hero" "Mr. Prohartchin"
Like some of Fyodor Dostoevsky's more renowned works, these stories give the listener a glimpse of an entirely different world, though one that still mirrors life today.
