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 GRANTA BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. New ed. Language: English. Brand new Book. Just two weeks after completing Crime and Punishment, Dostoevsky produced a second novel with a very different man at its centre. In The Idiot, the saintly Prince Myshkin returns to Russia from a Swiss sanitorium 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. Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky's new translation - fresh, crisp and faithful to the original (bumps and blemishes included) - brings the story of Prince Myshkin to new life. As is true of their previous translations of the works Dostoevsky and Gogol, this will be the definitive edition of The Idiot for years to come. Seller Inventory # AA99781862075931
