The Idiot, CD-Audio Book


Prince Lef Nicolaievitch Muishkin is one of the great characters in Russian literature.

Is he a saint or just naive? Is he an idealist or, as many in General Epanchin's society feel, an 'idiot'?

Certainly his return to St Petersburg after years in a Swiss clinic has a dramatic effect on the beautiful Aglaya, youngest of the Epanchin daughters, and on the charismatic but wilful Nastasia Philipovna.

As he paints a vivid picture of Russian society, Dostoyevsky shows how principles conflict with emotions with tragic results.
