White Nights / The Eternal Husband
Translated from Russian by Tengiz Chkhaidze
White Nights is a short story told by a nameless narrator who falls in love with a young woman, but their relationship leads to his loneliness because she reunites with her former lover.
The Eternal Husband is a story about a man destined to be married to unfaithful women. The plot revolves around two men, their complicated relationship, love and loyalty.
Both works provide further evidence that Dostoyevsky indeed is a master of psychological narrative.
