    The Idiot by Dostoevsky was my first run in with Dostoevsky and his works and it certainly won't be my last. I was interested by the complex messages that were in the book and reflecting upon it this question came to me. Is there a society that Myshkin could live in without being treated as an outcast such as he was throughout The Idiot? Book by Fyodor Dostoevsky (Part VI, Chapter 4, p. ), Copy quote. The darker the night, the brighter the stars, The deeper the grief, the closer is God! Fyodor Dostoevsky. Good Night, God, Stars. Copy quote. Never mind a little dirt, if the goal is splendid!

      Dostoevsky worked on the text in and published it the following year in Epoch, the magazine edited by his brother Mikhail.“Notes from Underground” feels like a warmup for the colossus.   Fyodor Dostoevsky was a Russian novelist and writer of fiction whose works, including Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov, have had a profound and lasting effect on intellectual thought and world literature. Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky were awarded the PEN/ Book-of-the-Month Translation Prize for The Brothers Karamazov and have also translated Dostoevsky /5(8).

      In Fyodor Dostoevsky’s novel, a former student named Raskolnikov plans and perpetrates a savage murder in order to test his theory that he is an extraordinary man. Crime and Punishment abounds with coincidences. Two examples are Raskolnikov’s overhearing of a discussion about killing the pawnbroker, which solidifies his resolve to commit the murder, and his discovery of the injured Marmeladov in the street.
