L’idiota non è solo un libro straordinario, ma una sfida al mondo che conosce soltanto valori materiali. Tutto il romanzo ruota intorno al protagonista, il principe Myškin, uno spirito puro, incapace di adeguarsi al cinismo, alla meschinità che dominano intorno a lui: con la sua disarmante bontà, la sua innocenza assoluta, egli aspira all’armonia totale. Myškin s’innamora della bellissima Nastas’ja, contendendola al passionale Rogožin. Nessuno si salverà dal male presente ovunque. Resta la vibrante lezione morale che, attraverso il suo personaggio, Dostoevskij ci ha dato.

I’ve been trying to review this book for over a week now, but I can’t. I’m struggling with something: How do I review a Russian literature classic? Better yet, how do I review a Russian literature classic without sounding like a total dumbass? (Hint: It’s probably not going to happen.) First I suppos Leggi tutto
If Raskolnikov was the charismatic murderer whose side I took despite myself when he killed an old woman out of greed and broke down psychologically afterwards, Prince Myshkin is the supposedly good, childlike Christ figure whom I failed to like at all. Just do make it clear from the beginning: I l
There are many reviews of this book making out that Prince Myshkin was Christ-like, a truly good man who lived for the moment. A holy idiot, or more accurately, wholly idiot indeed is what he really was. Why did they think Dostoyevsky entitled the book, The Idiot if he meant 'The Man who was Innocen Leggi tutto

Prince Lev Nicolayevich Myschkin discovered relativity in 1886. Well, actually the scientific theory of relativity wasn’t discovered until 30 years later, by Albert Einstein, but I don’t think that discovery would have been possible without the relativistic ferment that had started sweeping through E Leggi tutto
رضا امیرخانی، جایی گفته بود که "اگه قرار بود نویسنده ها پیامبری داشته باشن، پیامبرشون تولستوی خواهد بود." حرف درستیه، ولی این پیامبر از داستایوسکی وحی دریافت میکنه! من از بین رمان های داستایوسکی، بیشتر از همه عاشق "جنایت و مکافات" و بعد "ابله" هستم. در درجات بعد، قمار باز و برادران کارامازوف و همزاد و Leggi tutto
Death Penalty and Epilepsy Have you ever imagined what you would think and feel if you had a gun to your head, about to be executed? Returning to St. Petersburg from a Swiss sanatorium, the gentle but naive Prince Myshkin pays a visit to his distant relatives. He was receiving treatment for epilepsy a Leggi tutto
A terrific novel - very worth reading - but lacking the thrust and pleasures of BROTHERS KARAMAZOV, which is one of my favorite books. It is, perhaps, the most difficult novel to evaluate with the Goodreads star system, because it is both very, very great, and not particularly good. When the action
Εκεί που πολεμούν οι άνθρωποι με τις αδυναμίες τους και τα όνειρα, εκεί που οι δειλοί πεθαίνουν πριν τον θάνατο τους, εκεί που οι σκέψεις κάνουν πρόβα για να κρύψουν ό,τι αισθάνονται ή να αισθανθούν ό,τι κρύβουν, εκεί που δεν ξέρεις ποιον φόβο σου να αγαπήσεις περισσότερο, εκεί θα περιμένει πάντα έν Leggi tutto
Prince Myshkin, 26, arrives in St. Petersburg, Russia by train, "The Beautiful Man" has too much compassion for this cynical age. He believes every person, trusts all, feels the pain of the suffering unfortunates, thus has no common sense. Simple? Gullible? An idiot? Or a Saint? That question only y Leggi tutto
