Notes From the Underground, Fyodor Dostoevsky
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.

do you know, gentlemen, what was the chief point about my spite? Why, the whole point, the real sting of it lay in the fact that continually, even in the moment of the acutest spleen, I was inwardly conscious with shame that I was not only not a spiteful but not even an embittered man, that I was simply scaring sparrows at random and amusing myself by it.
