The Double charts the psychological collapse of Yakov Golyadkin, an awkward, angst-ridden office-worker in St Petersburg. Golyadkin suddenly becomes aware that his office contains a Double of himself, a creature who floats effortlessly through life, well respected and surrounded by admiring friends. Disturbingly, no one but Golyadkin seems aware of this startling state of affairs, further straining the troubled bureaucrat's tenuous hold on sanity. But is the Double real, or is it perhaps - as Dostoyevsky's brilliantly ambiguous script seems to imply - simply one of the many 'voices' that exist within Golyadkin himself?

From the Publisher:

Hesperus Press, as suggested by their Latin motto, Et remotissima prope, is dedicated to bringing near what is far—far both in space and time. Works by illustrious authors, often unjustly neglected or simply little known in the English–speaking world, are made accessible through a completely fresh editorial approach and new translations.

Through these classic works, which feature forewords by leading contemporary authors, the modern reader will be introduced to the greatest writers of Europe and America. An elegantly designed series of genuine rediscoveries.

About the Author:

Fyodor Dostoyevsky was a Russian novelist, short story writer and essayist whose literary works explored human psychology in the troubled political, social, and spiritual context of nineteenth-century Russia. A student of the Nikolayev Military Engineering Institute, Dostoyevsky initially worked as an engineer, but began translating books to earn extra money. The publication of his first novel, Poor Folk, allowed him to join St. Petersburg s literary circles. A prolific writer, Dostoyevsky is best known for work from the latter part of his career, including the classic novels Crime and Punishment, The Idiot and The Brothers Karamazov. Dostoyevsky s influence extends to authors as diverse as Anton Chekhov, James Joyce, Ernest Hemingway, and Jean-Paul Sartre, among many others. He died in 1881.
