NotesUnknown - 1968
In The Idiot, Prince Myshkin, a saintly man, is thrust into the heart of a society obsessed with wealth, power, and sexual conquest. He soon finds himself at the center of a violent love triangle in which a notorious woman and a beautiful young girl become rivals for his affections. Extortion, scandal, and murder follow, as Dostoevsky's ""positively good man"" clashes with the emptiness of a society that cannot accommodate his moral idealism. This wonderfully fresh and faithful translation-never before published-is sure to become the definitive edition in English.
