Such balls, more like family rejoicings than balls, can only be given in such houses as that of the civil councillor, Berendyev. Golyadkin shook himself a little, shook off the snow which had drifted in thick layers on his hat, his collar, his overcoat, his tie, his boots and everything — but his strange feeling, his strange obscure misery he could not get rid of, could not shake off. The truth that he found.
Golyadkin, also in a whisper, turning his miserable eyes about him, trying helplessly to discover in the amazed crowd something on which he could gain a footing and retrieve his social position. And the knowledge of the laws of happiness is higher than happiness. The behaviour of his colleagues and companions surprised him. Golyadkin was now completely worked up, and had suddenly become almost blissful, the fancy took him to have a jovial time. Presented in chronological order, in David Magarshack's celebrated translation, this is the definitive edition of Dostoevsky's best stories.
Golyadkin was melted; he was genuinely touched. Et nombreux sont les prétendants à la succession. It could be seen that he was preparing himself for some great enterprise, to say nothing more; he muttered to himself, gesticulated with his right hand, continually looked out of his carriage window, so that, looking at Mr. It is needless to say that my pen is too weak, dull, and spiritless to describe the dance that owed its inspiration to the genial hospitality of the grey-headed host.

The narrator took not only the first step toward his true Self when he crossed that road, but he took the second step when he returned… the third in baring his soul… and the fourth in returning yet again on nothing but the promise of the opportunity to feel alive.
The dinner did not last long, for they were both in a hurry, the host because he felt ill at ease, and was, besides, ashamed that the dinner was a poor one — he was partly ashamed because he wanted to give the visitor a good meal, and partly because he wanted to show him he did not live like a beggar. Arranging to purchase a complete dinner — and tea-service for fifteen hundred roubles and including in the bargain for that sum a cigar-case of ingenious form and a silver shaving-set, and finally, asking the price of some other articles, useful and agreeable in their own way, he ended by promising to come without fail next day, or to send for his purchases the same day.
