مجموعة قصص

Poor Folk and Other Stories by Fyodor Dostoevsky.. Poor Folk was Dostoyevsky's first great triumph in fiction and the work that looks forward to the double-acts and obsessions of his later genius.It takes place in a world of office , lodging-house and seamstress's rooms and consists of an impoverished love affair in letters between a copy clerk and a young girl who lives opposite him.

Of the other stories in this volume The Landlady portrays a dreamer hero, housed in dreams of art until he is forced to move from his lodgings; and Polzunkov is a sketch of a "voluntary buffoon." For Mr.Prokharchin Dostoyevsky lifted a plot from a stranger-than-fiction newspaper story (about a poor man's hidden hoard's) and transformed it into inspired and desolate comedy.
