"'The fire is in the minds of men and not in the roofs of houses,' Dostoevsky writes at one point in DEMONS. The fact remains that for the great Russian novelist art was a theurgical function interdependent with the state of the soul." -George Panichas, THE BURDEN OF VISION
Translated by Constance Garnett
DEMONS [THE POSSESSED] follows a small circle of revolutionaries who, dissatisfied with the present state of provincial Russia and the wider world, place their faith in radical political theologies with hopes that the structures of society and being can be changed. Dostoevsky's theological anxieties become strikingly manifest in DEMONS, and the novel gains profundity because Dostoevsky does not combat nihilism by fleeing from it, but by giving it full narrative expression. The novel does not read like a morality tale, even if it portrays the "consequences" or logical practical counterparts of nihilistic philosophies. This moving story of inter-generational tensions, of revolutionaries and criminals, of strong men and underground men, of unbound love and exploited lovers, told by a master psychologist, still has staying power today.
