Description:
Returning to Russia from a sanitarium in Switzerland, the Christ-like epileptic Prince Myshkin finds himself enmeshed in a tangle of love, torn between two women—the notorious kept woman Nastasya and the pure Aglaia—both involved, in turn, with the corrupt, money-hungry Ganya. In the end, Myshkin's honesty, goodness, and integrity are shown to be unequal to the moral emptiness of those around him.

The book marks the dividing line between classic and 20th century fiction, and between the visions that each century embodied. The narrator is a man who has withdrawn to an underground existence. Definitely author’s most revolutionary novel.
