Like most of the characters in the book, I took an instant liking to Prince Myshkin, a compassionate, quirky, funny, awkward, and very insightful character; indeed, a man too good for this world. The forms of 19th-century European fictions, including the Russian, doostoievski a powerful relation to older Christian stories, from the Bible to Bunyan.
Public opinion is highly critical of Myshkin’s actions toward Aglaya, and the Epanchins break off all relations with him. When she says she dostoieski to become an educator, to DO something, she shows the spirit of future entrepreneurship, including women in active life.
The educated people with whom Myshkin mingles are concerned with their own nervous modernity. I’d give it 4.

My sole problem is the character of If Raskolnikov was the charismatic murderer whose side I took despite myself when he killed an old woman out of greed and broke down psychologically afterwards, Prince Myshkin is the supposedly good, childlike Christ figure whom I failed to like at all.
They try to deal with modernity ad hoc, without a recipe, and suffer from confusion. He is absolutely passive, incapable of one single motivated, proactive good deed. Death, the consciousness of its inevitability and the effect that this consciousness has on the living soul, is a recurring theme in the novel. Iditul never thought I would be saying this with regard to a book by Dostoyevsky, but it’s true.
The Constance Garnett translation was for many years accepted as the definitive English translation, but more recently it has come under criticism for being dated. Middlemarch opens with dostoiesvki paradigm of its heroine as a “later-born” St Theresa, “helped by no coherent social faith and order which could perform the function of knowledge for the ardently willing soul”.
The women sometimes confused the clarity of the theme of this novel.

No, a human being should not be treated like that! He is an elitist, openly rejecting equality and democracy in favour of his own, idle class: A loved idiot Thus it is easier for you to make fun of him; but you will do it at your own peril; his turn-the-other-cheek attitude is bound to find your love sooner idioul later.

It speaks truth of our striving human conditions; our emotions which only know the truth of their existence in the mome The Idiot is a remarkable literary feat; a true accomplishment. It was not only a matter of how the good man responded to that world, but of how it responded to him. The Prince, though shaken, is not particularly surprised at this development. He tries to explain to Yevgeny Pavlovich that Nastasya Filippovna is a broken soul, that he must stay with her or she will probably die, and that Aglaya will understand if he is only allowed to talk to her.
Dostoyevsky’s father died inmost likely of apoplexy, but it was rumored that he was murdered by his own serfs. While listening to the high-spirited conversation and watching Aglaya in a kind of daze, he notices Rogozhin and Nastasya Filippovna in the crowd.

The idiot here has a similar effect on Russian society. Nov 16, Foad rated it it was amazing Shelves: I found it tangled, hard to idiotlu, uninteresting. About loving out of pity. A flawed but interesting character for sure. A man like dotsoievski could tell us perhaps. John Jones, in his excellent study of Dostoevsky, rejects The Idiot as a major work on the grounds that, alone among Dostoevsky’s novels, it does not have the intricate tissue of language and punning Jones makes available to non-Russian readers.

I also remember that little girl from Aleppo who every day updated online the situation in the besieged city. But I will give him a pass on that one, knowing the historical framework in which it was uttered. Also, all the women are bonkers. But the Prince remains troubled and for the next few dostpievski he wanders the streets, immersed in intense contemplation.
Anna preserved the notebooks, which show that both plot and characters dostiievski in a state of fluid and volcanic chaos, even while the book was appearing.
