The Crocodile (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

By Dostoevsky, Fyodor

The Crocodile is a short story by Fyodor Dostoyevsky that was first published in 1865 in his magazine Epoch. The story relates the events that befall one Ivan Matveich when he, his wife Elena Ivanovna, and the narrator visit the Passage on Nevsky Avenue to see a crocodile that ha...s been put on display by a German entrepreneur. After teasing the crocodile, Ivan Matveich is swallowed alive. He finds the inside of the crocodile to be quite comfortable, and the animal's owner refuses to allow it to be cut open, in spite of the pleas from Elena Ivanovna.
