Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881) was a Russian novelist, journalist, short-story writer whose works had a profound influence on the 20th century novel. Series: Penguin Classics.
Dostoyevsky portrays his protagonist and his exploits in such excruciating deal that it’s both infuriating and invites the reader to cringe often. The story just escalates, and escalates, and escalates, and what starts as a sort of detached amusement at the protagonist turns into rage and disgust as his ridiculousness, and all that he embodies, is increasingly acutely realised. Yet it’s not all condemnation and satire. The prose in this story (at least, the English translation by Ronald Meyer) is also more striking than usual, some very lovely turns of phrase here, particularly in the utopian section of the story.
