Sentences from the text of Uncle John’s dream book
Maria Alexandrava Maskalova, of course, is the first lady of Mardasov, and there is no doubt about that.
He behaved as if he did not need anyone, and vice versa, everyone needs him. To be honest, almost no one likes him, and there are even many people who hate him from the bottom of their hearts.
But instead, everyone is afraid of him, and this is what is needed. Such a need is a sign of great expertise and politics.
One of the unique characteristics of Maria Alexandrauna is that she is extremely interested in informing and if she has not heard anything new the day before, she will not sleep all night until morning.
Despite all this, she can behave in such a way that if they look at her, it will not even occur to anyone that this great lady is the first informant in the world or at least the first informant in the city of Mardasov!
On the contrary, it seems that gossip should be destroyed in his presence, gossip should be ashamed and tremble like a schoolboy in front of the teacher, and the conversation should not continue except about the highest materials and attributes.
About the author of the book Uncle’s Dream: Fyodor Dostoevsky
Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky, a prominent Russian writer, was born on October 30, 1821, the second child of the Dostoevsky family.

A unique feature of Dostoevsky’s work is the psychoanalysis and study of the psychological angles of the characters in the story in such a way that the surrealists have presented their manifesto based on Dostoevsky’s writings.

Most of his stories, like his own, are the story of a rebellious, sick and depressed people.

Fyodor’s father was a physician and had emigrated from Ukraine to Moscow. In 1843 he graduated from the military academy with the rank of officer and got a job in the engineering department of the Ministry of War.
In the winter of 1844-1845, Dostoevsky wrote the short novel The Poor People, which earned him a reputation as a radical and deconstructive writer in St. Petersburg.

Two years later, he wrote the stories “Hamzad”, “Mr. Prokharchin” and “Mrs. Sahebkhaneh”.

A police spy broke into the forum and reported the intellectual debate to Russian security officials, who arrested him for overthrowing the government.
He was sentenced to death by a military court, which was eventually commuted to four years in prison in Siberia and then served in plain military uniform, but the prisoners were placed in front of execution squads to demonstrate the power of the tsarist government.

His personal experience of being on the verge of death led him to say years later, “I do not remember ever being as happy as I was that day.”

Between 1862 and 1864, Dostoevsky published The Memoirs of the House of the Dead and The Afflicted. In 1866 he wrote Crime and Punishment, and in October of that year he wrote the novel The Gambler in 26 Days.
She finished writing “Stupid” in 1869 and wrote “Always Husband” in the fall of that year. In July 1871 he wrote The Inhabitants, in the winter of 1875 he wrote The Raw Young, and from 1879 to 1880 he wrote The Karamazov Brothers.

Dostoevsky died at the age of 59 on February 9, 1881 in St. Petersburg.

In another part of Uncle John’s book, we read:
At a glance you will not consider Amir old at all, but after looking closely at him from a close distance, you will see that he is nothing more than a dead body moving with the help of a spring.

They used all the tools of art to transform this mummified body into a young man.

Strange wig and parish and a small Spanish mustache and beard that is decorated with a great black color and covers more than half of his head and face.

His face is skillfully painted and almost wrinkle-free.
But where are these wrinkles?
It is not clear whether Amir is dressed in a fashionable way or an image that has been taken out of the magazine.

The formal clothes he wore, along with gloves, ties, vests, shirts, etc., were completely fresh and selected with a delicate taste.

Amir limps a little, but he does it with such skill that it seems that this limping is also a fashionable accessory.
