Prince Myshkin returns to Russia from an asylum in Switzerland. As he becomes embroiled in the frantic amatory and financial intrigues which centre around a cast of brilliantly realised characters and which ultimately lead to tragedy, he emerges as a unique combination of the Christian ideal of perfection.
A towering figure of Russian literature, Fyodor Dostoyevsky depicted with remarkable insight the depth and complexity of the human soul. In this literary classic, he focuses on a nobleman, whose gentle, child-like nature has earned him the nickname of "the idiot."A superb, panoramic view of mid-19th-century Russian manners, morals and philosophy.
About The Author:
Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky (1821-1881), one of nineteenth- century Russia's greatest novelists, spent four years in a convict prison in Siberia, after which he was obliged to enlist in the army. In later years his penchant for gambling sent him deeply into debt.
David McDuff has translated many works for Penguin Classics, including Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov.
