Abstract:

Despite the harsh circumstances besetting his own life, abject poverty, incessant gambling, and the death of his firstborn child, Dostoevsky produced a second masterpiece, The Idiot, just two years after completing Crime and punishment. In it, a saintly man, Prince Myshkin, is thrust into the heart of a society more concerned with wealth, power, and sexual conquest than the ideals of Christianity. Myshkin 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, testing the wreckage left by human misery to find "man in man."
