Prince Lef Mikolayevitch Muishkin is one of the greatest characters in Russian literature. Is he a saint? Or is he just naive, an idealist, or as many in General Yepanchin’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 Yepanchin daughters—and on the charismatic but willful Nastasio Phillipovna. The prince finds himself a stranger in a society obsessed with money, power, and manipulation. As he paints a vivid picture of Russian society, Dostoyevsky shows how principles conflict with emotions—with tragic results.

Author Bio: Fyodor Dostoevsky

Author Bio: Fyodor Dostoevsky

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (1821–1881) was a Russian novelist, journalist, and short-story writer whose psychological penetration into the darkest recesses of the human heart had a profound and universal influence on the twentieth-century novel. He was born in Moscow, the son of a surgeon. Leaving the study of engineering for literature, he published Poor Folk in 1846. As a member of revolutionary circles in St. Petersburg, he was condemned to death in 1849. A last-minute reprieve sent him to Siberia for hard labor. Returning to St. Petersburg in 1859, he worked as a journalist and completed his masterpiece, Crime and Punishment, as well as other works, including The Idiot and The Brothers Karamazov.
