He wants to save this lady, from a life of inevitable degradation and doom, the eternal triangle. The title is an ironic reference to the central character of the novel, Prince Knyaz Lev Nikolaevich Myshkin, a young man whose goodness and open-hearted simplicity lead many of the more worldly characters he encounters to mistakenly assume that he lacks intelligence and insigh While published inThe Idiot is essentially timeless and remains one of the best fiodorr of all time.

El idiota / The Idiot

It can be baggy, chaotic, digressive but the best bits are simply brilliant and overall I found it dostoiwvski tremendously edifying read. If so, Russia must be pretty much top of the list.

He was nearly beginning to reproach himself for his laughter, but at once realised that he had nothing to reproach himself with, since he had an infinite pity for the general.

He has no sense of social class – he could talk in the same way with servants or master, grownups or children. If I could see in Myshkin a person who is on the autistic spectrum, I would feel compassion for him and be frustrated that his community is not capable of helping him communicate according to his abilities. Myshkin has none at all.

Instead of putting his always arresting philosophical speeches into the mouths of major characters, several minor characters butt into the story in order to deliver lengthy and, from the perspective of the story, rather pointless harangues that are promptly swept to the side. The abused child who takes out the punishment on herself, like anorexic or self-harming young girls nowadays, convinced that the harm done to them is a sign of their own filthiness.

Seeing General Epanchin retired, his wife has the same name as our “hero,” maybe some kind of relation? In any case, I highly recommend this novel, one of my favorites. And what a money-hungry, power-hungry, cold and manipulative society it is. The only thing I dislike about Dostoyevsky and the one reason why I’m not giving The Idiot five stars is his tendency to go off on tangents just when something exciting is about to happen.


His social ineptitude, his lack of imagination, his literal-mindedness, his prejudices – all of that might be fitting the time and place where he lives, but ifiota is not objectively good.

Yet despite all idiita exclamation points and the excessively passionate characters — who all seem to speak with great clarity, with penetrating philosophical insight — Dostoevsky novels still feel very real to me.

Mar 06, Megan Baxter rated it really liked it. Just do make it clear from the beginning: Shortly after the death of his mother in he was sent to St. And it’s all classical Russian drama and dosttoievski, which is to say it’s full of passion, obsession, sudden mood swings, tantrums and hysterical fits.

I am still giving it three stars, however, because there are occasional brilliant flashes.
