Sinopse

This box contains two books - 'The House of the Dead' is an account of Dostoyevsky's own experience of penal servitude in Siberia. He describes the suffering of the convicts - their squalor and degradation, their terror and resignation, from the rampages of a pyschopath to the brief serenity of Christmas Day. Amid the horror of labour in the sub-zero work camp, the book presents the stories of the prisoners, and live through the freezing isolation and pain of day after day of misery. 'The Gambler' is set in a spa town with its casino and international clientèle. Alexey Ivanovitch is a young tutor in the household of a general. He is both observer and actor in the tempest which surrounds his impoverished employer, as he envies and mocks the airs and pretensions of his supposed superiors. Everyone is waiting for the death of Granny, the general's rich aunt, but so far from dying, she turns up alive and well, and makes her way to the casino.
