In this dark and compelling short novel Fyodor Dostoevsky tells the story of Alexey Ivanovitch a young tutor working in the household of an imperious Russian general Alexey tries to break through the wall of the established order in Russia but instead becomes mired in the endless downward spiral of betting and loss His intense and inescapable addiction is accentuated by his affair with the General s cruel yet seductive niece Polina In i The Gambler i Dostoevsky reaches the heights of drama with this stunning psychological portrait, Dostoevsky s most revolutionary novel Notes from Underground marks the dividing line between nineteenth and twentieth century fiction and between the visions of self each century embodied One of the most remarkable characters in literature the unnamed narrator is a former official who has defiantly withdrawn into an underground existence In full retreat from society he scrawls a passionate obsessive self contradictory narrative that serves as a devastating attack on social utopianism and an assertion of man s essentially irrational nature br br Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky whose Dostoevsky translations have become the standard give us a brilliantly faithful edition of this classic novel conveying all the tragedy and tormented comedy of the original, While his literary reputation rests mainly on such celebrated novels as i Crime and Punishment i i The Brothers Karamazov i and i The Idiot i Dostoyevsky also wrote much superb short fiction i The Double i is one of the finest of his shorter works It appeared in his second published work and is by far the most significant of his early stories not least for its successful straight faced treatment of a hallucinatory theme br In i The Double i the protagonist Golyadkin senior is persecuted by his double Golyadkin junior who resembles him closely in almost every detail The latter abuses the former with mounting scorn and brutality as the tale proceeds toward its frightening denouement Characteristic Dostoyevskyan themes of helplessness victimization and scandal are beautifully handled here with an artistry that qualifies the story as a small masterpiece br Students of literature admirers of Dostoyevsky and general readers will all be delighted to have this classic work available in this inexpensive high quality edition br, Returning to Russia from a sanitarium in Switzerland the Christ like epileptic Prince Myshkin finds himself enmeshed in a tangle of love torn between two women the notorious kept woman Nastasya and the pure Aglaia both involved in turn with the corrupt money hungry Ganya In the end Myshkin s honesty goodness and integrity are shown to be unequal to the moral emptiness of those around him In her revision of the Garnett translation Anna Brailovsky has corrected inaccuracies wrought by Garnett s drastic anglicization of the novel restoring as much as possible the syntactical structure of the original
