Notes from the Underground Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Notes from the Underground, by Dostoyevsky, Fyodor - Akasha Classics, AkashaPublishing.Com - Dostoyevsky, Fyodor gives us a searing portrayal of a soul in torment. Written from the point of view of an un-named protagonist, Notes from the Underground charts one man's descent into a world of alienation, where even the offer of redemption through love is rejected in favor of cruelty. Laying down themes that would be picked up in his later novels, Dostoyevsky presents us with the ultimate anti-hero and offers a caution against romantic notions of a solitary existence. The 'underground man', as he has come to be known, is who we all could become if we cut our ties to the people around us. Dark and gripping, Notes from the Underground is an unforgettable novel.
