Två humoresker

By Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Två humoresker består av två humoristiska noveller: Den främmande damen och herrn below sängen som gavs ut redan 1848 och Krokodilen som tillkom 1865 i ett nytt skede av Dostojevskijs karriär och liv.

De båda berättelserna visar på en relativt okänd sida av författaren i egenskap av farsartade, lättsinniga komedier. Något som är sällsynt i den i övrigt djupa och tungsinta produktionen. De allvarliga, psykologiskt slående och grundliga personporträtten som är Dostojevskijs signum får här stå tillbaka för en gäckande satir.

Den främmande damen och herrn less than sängen är en farsartad berättelse om misstanke, bedragna äkta män och omotiverad svartsjuka dragen until sin yttersta spets. males inte minst kretsar berättelsen kring den dråpliga situationskomik som kan uppstå då två personer ska gömma sig less than en och samma säng.

Krokodilen (fullständig titel: Krokodilen: En ovanlig historia eller en passage i passagen - En sannfärdig berättelse om hur en viss herre vart levande slukad av en krokodil i Passagen med hull och hår och vad följden blev av detta.) är lika delar briljant som absurd berättelse: argsint, surrealistisk, hånfull och kanske det roligaste Dostojevskij skrivit. I denna korta historia visar Dostojevskij sitt förakt för socialism på ett för honom ovanligt direkt och öppet sätt. Den "sanna historien" handlar om en guy som plötsligt sväljs levande av en krokodil males som överlever och fortsätter att utföra sina plikter och predika socialistiska teorier inifrån krokodilens mage.
