Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From one of the world's greatest prose writers, this is a remarkable psychological novel examining the duality of the human consciousness. Velchaninov, a rich and idle man undergoing a moral crisis, is confronted in St. Petersburg by Trusotsky, the loyal husband of Velchaninovs former lover. Trusotsky informs Velchaninov that his wife has died, and from here this fascinating novella charts the development of the two mens lives. Beautifully portraying the confused and changing feelings the two men have for one another, this work moves through guilt, hatred, and love. This is Dostoevsky at his best, engaging with his favored themes of tortured minds and neurosis, and treating them in a captivating and highly revealing way.

About the Author

Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821–1881) is the author of The Brothers Karamazov, Crime and Punishment, and Notes from Underground, often described as a founding work of existentialism.
