About the Author

One of the most powerful and significant authors in all modern fiction, Fyodor Dostoevsky was the son of a harsh and domineering army surgeon who was murdered by his own serfs (slaves), an event that was extremely important in shaping Dostoevsky's view of social and economic issues. He studied to show more be an engineer and began work as a draftsman. However, his first novel, Poor Folk (1846), was so well received that he abandoned engineering for writing. In 1849, Dostoevsky was arrested for being a part of a revolutionary group that owned an illegal printing press. He was sentenced to be executed, but the sentence was changed at the last minute, and he was sent to a prison camp in Siberia instead. By the time he was released in 1854, he had become a devout believer in both Christianity and Russia - although not in its ruler, the Czar. During the 1860's, Dostoevsky's personal life was in constant turmoil as the result of financial problems, a gambling addiction, and the deaths of his wife and brother. His second marriage in 1887 provided him with a stable home life and personal contentment, and during the years that followed he produced his great novels: Crime and Punishment (1886), the story of Rodya Raskolnikov, who kills two old women in the belief that he is beyond the bounds of good and evil; The Idiots (1868), the story of an epileptic who tragically affects the lives of those around him; The Possessed (1872), the story of the effect of revolutionary thought on the members of one Russian community; A Raw Youth (1875), which focuses on the disintegration and decay of family relationships and life; and The Brothers Karamazov (1880), which centers on the murder of Fyodor Karamazov and the effect the murder has on each of his four sons. These works have placed Dostoevsky in the front rank of the world's great novelists. Dostoevsky was an innovator, bringing new depth and meaning to the psychological novel and combining realism and philosophical speculation in his complex studies of the human condition.

Short biography
Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky Russian: 11 November 1821 – 9 February 1881, sometimes transliterated Dostoyevsky, was a Russian novelist, short story writer, essayist and journalist. Dostoevsky's literary works explore human psychology in the troubled political, social, and spiritual atmospheres of 19th-century Russia, and engage with a variety of philosophical and religious themes. His most acclaimed works include Crime and Punishment (1866), The Idiot (1869), Demons (1872), and The Brothers Karamazov (1880). Dostoevsky's body of works consists of 12 novels, four novellas, 16 short stories, and numerous other works. Many literary critics rate him as one of the greatest psychological novelists in world literature. His 1864 novella Notes from Underground is considered to be one of the first works of existentialist literature.

Born in Moscow in 1821, Dostoevsky was introduced to literature at an early age through fairy tales and legends, and through books by Russian and foreign authors. His mother died in 1837 when he was 15, and around the same time, he left school to enter the Nikolayev Military Engineering Institute. After graduating, he worked as an engineer and briefly enjoyed a lavish lifestyle, translating books to earn extra money. In the mid-1840s he wrote his first novel, Poor Folk, which gained him entry into St. Petersburg's literary circles. Arrested in 1849 for belonging to a literary group that discussed banned books critical of Tsarist Russia, he was sentenced to death but the sentence was commuted at the last moment. He spent four years in a Siberian prison camp, followed by six years of compulsory military service in exile. In the following years, Dostoevsky worked as a journalist, publishing and editing several magazines of his own and later A Writer's Diary, a collection of his writings. He began to travel around western Europe and developed a gambling addiction, which led to financial hardship. For a time, he had to beg for money, but he eventually became one of the most widely read and highly regarded Russian writers.

Dostoevsky was influenced by a wide variety of philosophers and authors including Pushkin, Gogol, Augustine, Shakespeare, Dickens, Balzac, Lermontov, Hugo, Poe, Plato, Cervantes, Herzen, Kant, Belinsky, Hegel, Schiller, Solovyov, Bakunin, Sand, Hoffmann, and Mickiewicz.

His writings were widely read both within and beyond his native Russia and influenced an equally great number of later writers including Russians like Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and Anton Chekhov, philosophers Friedrich Nietzsche and Jean-Paul Sartre and the emergence of Existentialism and Freudianism. His books have been translated into more than 170 languages.

Reviews

Thirty years ago, at the university, when I read this for the first time I was more interested in the philosophical lines of thought. This time, I was much more impatient with the characters in the novel. I had far less tolerance of their deep flaws. Thirty years ago, though I saw the tragedy in the characters I found emotional release and a kind of pleasure in experiencing the novel. This time I was kept thinking, "make it stop" Mitya is too much. Ivan is too much. Smerdyakov is just awful. This prosecutor is ridiculous. How long can this defense attorney drone on about nothing? Thirty years ago, the lesson of the triumph of child-like faith was mostly lost on me or at least I don't remember thinking about it. Ilyusha had not the smell of decay. The sure-Saint Zossima decayed prematurely. The simple and uncelebrated faith of a little boy received only the brief press of the author's comment. Alyosha and his band of boy disciples would swear to treaure his memory but the greater community might have forgotten him completely. Yet, this boys simple faith could conquer death and its stink. Only one boy received the rebuke of Alyosha. It was the one boy who wanted to grow up, who wanted to be a free thinking man before manhood. It was the teenage boy, Kolya, who tried to snuff out another boys significance, but was contradicted by Alyosha. Yet even he was affirmed as being fully significant in the eyes of God and fully eligable for a resurrection and reunion at the end of the age. A beautiful, lengthy, difficult and rewarding novel. If I keep my wits I hope to read it a third time in this life.… (more)

The narrator of this two-part novella is the most thorough-going misanthrope I can recall encountering in literature. The one person he hates most is himself, a poverty-stricken retired minor government clerk.
Before reading the book, I’d heard it praised for its psychological insight. To the extent that this offers an unsparing depiction of a mindset, yes. But there is little exploration of why this man turned out as he did, only hints, such as his being an orphan. Or why he makes choices that will only deepen his isolation and misery. Or refuses to even admit he is choosing, feeling compelled instead.
The narrator rants about the futility of utopian social programs as if that were the only alternative to his life and rails about the fatuity of the conformist crowd. But is the alternative self-flagellation? At one point, the narrator reflects on why he’s writing this down and concludes, “It’s hardly literature so much as a corrective punishment.” When he asks, “Which is better—cheap happiness or exalted sufferings?” I wondered if those were the only two options.
Then there is Liza, a novice prostitute as if to illustrate the adage that misery loves company (if only for a little while). Imaginative fiction explores the boundaries of existence; prostitutes in nineteenth-century Russia were undoubtedly on that boundary. For that reason alone, it’s unsurprising that these are a recurring motif for Dostoevsky. Rather than dismissing Liza as a rough draft for Sonya in Crime and Punishment, I saw the narrator’s ambivalence and cruelty toward her as another way the book presents us with choices the narrator refuses to make for failure to recognize they exist.
Without falling into the fallacy of conflating Dostoevsky and the narrator, I think it’s fair to assume that in writing this, Dostoevsky was examining moods and reactions he knew from personal experience. His aim seems to be to suggest that there is a little bit of this miserable man in all of us. As the narrator says, “We are all divorced from life, we are all cripples, every one of us, more or less. . . . I have only in my life carried to an extreme what you have not dared to carry halfway.”
I can’t say the book was a pleasure to read. That’s a left-handed tribute to Dostoevsky’s skill at creating an atmosphere and drawing the reader in. It’s also remarkable as an example of sustained monologue as a fiction technique. So, while I don’t think it’s on the level of his undeniably great novels, it’s still an achievement in its own way.

Notes From Underground depicts a protagonist/narrator who perceives himself to be an outcast, and is isolated from the society as a result. His isolation has turned his mind into an echo chamber in which he seeks pleasure in his mental anguish while despising humanity. At the beginning of this book, the reader might ask themselves whether there was any need for this book to be written, but as one gets more acquainted with the severely conflicted nature of the narrator, they are bound to feel increasingly at home with the feverish battle between the narrator's love for seclusion and his desire to be noticed. Dostoevsky masterfully paints this tug-of-war between the narrator's egoistic inertia and the constant temptation of gaining acceptance among his acquaintances through vulnerability, and the end product is a bundle of hopefulness and heartbreak… (more)

3.5/5 Having gotten through MIDDLEMARCH, ANNA KARENINA--even WAR AND PEACE, I was never so happy to reach 100% on my Kindle. As a former high school English teacher, the one thing I stressed to students over and over when writing was to SHOW and not TELL. Oh, does this novel have too much telling. It's brilliant in parts and overall a compelling story, yet, all that remains in my head is #blahblahblah. Couldn't have finished without the #hashtagbrigade on Litsy.
