Fyodor Dostoevsky

Notes From the Underground

The compelling works presented in this volume were written at distinct periods in Dostoyevsky's life, at decisive moments in his groping for a political philosophy and a religious answer. From the primitive peasant who kills without understanding that he is destroying life to the anxious antihero of Notes from Underground—who both craves and despises affection—the writer's often-tormented characters showcase his evolving outlook on our fate.

    Great story, but the man is sticking to his own space because the fear of the world and the experience of complete folly has lasting effects upon the public. Very nice book, but a bit difficult and difficult to handle.

    They laughed cynically at my face, at my clumsy figure; and yet what stupid faces they had themselves.

    Now, I am living out my life in my corner, taunting myself with the spiteful and useless consolation that an intelligent man cannot become anything seriously, and it is only the fool who becomes anything.

    Come, can a man who attempts to find enjoyment in the very feeling of his own degradation possibly have a spark of respect for himself?
