In The Idiot, the saintly Prince Myshkin returns to Russia from a Swiss sanatorium and finds himself a stranger in a society obsessed with wealth, power, and sexual conquest. He soon becomes entangled in a love triangle with a notorious kept woman, Nastasya, and a beautiful young girl, Aglaya. Extortion and scandal escalate to murder, as Dostoevsky’s “positively beautiful man” clashes with the emptiness of a society that cannot accommodate his innocence and moral idealism. The Idiot is both a powerful indictment of that society and a rich and gripping masterpiece.

From award-winning translators, a masterful new translation–never before published–of the novel in which Fyodor Dostoevsky set out to portray a truly beautiful soul.

From the Inside Flap:

From the award-winning translators of "The Brothers Karamazov, a superb new translation of the novel in which Dostoevsky set out to portray "a truly beautiful soul."
In "The Idiot, Prince Myshkin, a saintly man, is thrust into the heart of a society obsessed with wealth, power, and sexual conquest. He soon finds himself at the center of a violent love triangle in which a notorious woman and a beautiful young girl become rivals for his affections. Extortion, scandal, and murder follow, as Dostoevsky's "positively good man" clashes with the emptiness of a society that cannot accommodate his moral idealism.
This wonderfully fresh and faithful translation--never before published--is sure to become the definitive edition in English.

From the Back Cover:

“Nothing is outside Dostoevsky’s province. . . . Out of Shakespeare there is no more exciting reading.” —Virginia Woolf

Book Description Random House Inc May 2002, 2002. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dostoevsky intended to portray in the character of Prince Myshkin ''a truly Beautiful soul.'' Having done so, the author takes his beloved character into many settings among various people in order that he might speak truth into each situation. The story line is multifaceted -- and as quirky -- as life itself. As is common, people perceive the speaker of truth as a fool, an idiot, though in Prince Myshkin's case, a lovable one. 672 pp. Seller Inventory # 156681
