Notes From Underground, Paperback / softback Book

Notes From Underground Paperback / softback

Part of the Canons series

Paperback / softback

Description

'I am a sick person. I am a spiteful person. An unattractive person, too . . .'In the depths of a cellar in St. Petersburg, a civil servant spews forth a passionate and furious note on the ills of society.

The underground man's manifesto reveals his erratic, self-contradictory and even sadistic nature.

Yet in Dostoyevsky's most radical and disturbing character, there is the uncomfortable flicker of recognition of the human condition. When the narrator ventures above ground, he attends a dinner with a group of old school friends.

It is here, paralysed by his own social awkwardness, that he carries out extraordinary acts and cements his status as a true and original outsider.
