About this audiobook

Ein Meisterwerk Dostojewski’scher Erzählkunst und zu Recht berühmt geworden. In dem „Senti-mentalen Roman. Aus den Erinnerungen eines Träumers“ untertitelten Text berichtet ein namenloser Erzähler rückblickend von seiner Begegnung mit dem Mädchen Nastenka, einsam wie er, aber nicht voller Träume, nicht ohne Bezug zur Wirklichkeit wie er. Eine Romanze entspinnt sich und zwingt ihn, über sein Schein-Leben nachzudenken und wieder in Kontakt mit der Realität zu kommen, nicht eingebildete, sondern echte Empfindungen zu leben. Am Ende bleibt er zwar allein, doch mit dem Bewußtsein, einmal wirklich gelebt zu haben.
“Weisse Nächte” (White Nights) is a great example of Dostoyevsky’s storytelling art and has become quite popular around the globe. The sentimental story is told in first person by a nameless narrator recalling an encounter with a girl named Nastenka whom he falls in love with. His romantic feelings force him to reflect about his life and his relationship with reality. He remains lonely in the end, but not without the feeling of having truly loved.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Fyodor Dostoevsky was born in Moscow in 1821. Between 1838 and 1843 he studied at the St Petersburg Engineering Academy. His first work of fiction was the epistolary novel Poor Folk (1846), which met with a generally favourable response. However, his immediately subsequent works were less enthusiastically received. In 1849 Dostoevsky was arrested as a member of the socialist Petrashevsky circle, and subjected to a mock execution. He suffered four years in a Siberian penal settlement and then another four years of enforced military service. He returned to writing in the late 1850s and travelled abroad in the 1860s. It was during the last twenty years of his life that he wrote the iconic works, such as Notes from the Underground (1864), Crime and Punishment (1866), The Idiot (1868) and The Brothers Karamazov (1880), which were to form the basis of his formidable reputation. He died in 1881.
