The Idiot, Hardback Book

The Idiot Hardback

Part of the Everyman's Library Classics series

Hardback

Description

This study of natural goodness is Dostoevsky's most touching novel.

Prince Myshkin, the last, poverty-stricken member of a once great family and regarded by many as an idiot, returns to Russia from a sanatorium in Switzerland in order to collect an inheritance.

Before he has even arrived home he becomes involved with Rogozhin, a rich merchant's son whose obsession with the fascinating Nastasya Filippovna eventually draws all three of them into a tragic denouement.

But this is only the main thread of a rich and complex book in which a dazzling host of characters, from generals to street urchins, present the picture of an entire society on the verge of dissolution.

A tragicomic masterpiece.
