It doesn’t have a happy-ever-after ending, but there’s something terrifically grand and romantic about the ways in which the various lovers end, and I like that.

Mar 06, Megan Baxter rated it really liked it. No tengo nada que escribirle a usted respecto a mi persona, no tengo nada que contarle. The novel is structurally awkward, and many critics have commented on its seemingly chaotic organization. On the one hand there appear characters full of life and truth, but on the other, some kind of mysterious puppets hopping about as though in a dream One’s favourite books and authors swirl round, and are re-read I’ve always been a great re-reader.

For example, after an attack Myshkin is recuperating and is visited by most of the main players from Part One. The combination produces a cynical and destructive outer persona, which disguises a fragile and deeply hurt inner being.

Yet these shining moments were overshadowed by the many pages of tedium. Pushing on in the spring got me to the three-fourths point, and then I didn’t touch this book for half a year maybe. The Prince, though shaken, is not particularly surprised at this development. A man like that could tell us perhaps. There is enough passion, grandstanding and back-stabbing going on between them to keep things interesting, and plenty of twisted love, too.


But he suddenly becomes calm, informs them all that he is near death, and politely requests that he be permitted to talk to them for a while. Quixote inhabits the first real novel, in which the old forms of romance and religion become phantasms in his head and on our page, present but shadowy. I had known, without fully understanding before I read this excellent new translation, that the idea of death in this novel is peculiarly pinned to the idea of execution – what I had not thought through was that in a materialist world the dead man in the painting is an executed man, whose consciousness has been brutally cut off.

But as the Prince and Lizaveta Prokofyevna discuss what to do with the invalid, another transformation occurs and Ippolit, after unleashing a torrent of abuse at the Prince, leaves with the other young men.

This is a betrayal of the true teaching of Christ, a teaching that transcends the lust for earthly power the Devil’s Third Temptationand speaks directly to the individual’s and the people’s highest emotions—those that spring from what Myshkin calls “spiritual thirst”. Jewish society ultimately had the same attitude towards Christ. In midth century Russia when Dostoyevsky wrote The Idiot, it was the heyday of the thoughts of the Slavophiles who suggested a dichotomy between Russia and the West, the former being more spiritual, pure, and harmonious, the latter being more material, unfaithful, and cynical.

This was the idea to ” depict a completely beautiful human being”. Then towards the end of the novel, I even ended up calling him an idiot a few times. That doesnt mean I didn’t love it. In The Idiotthat good man is Prince Lyov Nikolayevitch Myshkin, who has spent most of his life in a Swiss hospital because of his epileptic fits, and now returns to the country of his youth. However, in his work, the writer of Saint Petersburg does not seek to defend a “mystification” of the disease against a scientific approach, per se.

There is a click but no shot: So many times I felt so angry when people called him mad, fool, idiot, because they failed to see the beautiful heart that the Prince had. But it is only temporary, and he soon begins another spontaneous discourse, this time on the subject of the aristocracy in Russia, once again becoming oblivious to all attempts to quell his ardour.

In the midst of a heated exchange with his nihilist nephew he expresses deep compassion for the soul of the Countess du Barrywho died in terror on the guillotine after pleading for her life with the executioner. And how the characters themselves represented the unique attributes–in splinter form–of the Russian whole.

Myshkin, on the other hand, is able to understand others, sympathize with them, and see through them the way they themselves cannot. Thus he conceives the idea of suicide as a final assertion of his will in an act of defiance against nature. View all 5 comments. His characters are deeply flawed, doetoevsky, and dense but at the same time they make me understand or at least Idita tried to how human nature works.

That year he joined a group of utopian socialists. What makes the greatness is double -the character of the prince, and a powerful series of confrontations with death. 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.

Dostoevsky’s extemporaneous approach helped facilitate the representation of the actual position of human subjectivity, as an open field of possibility where the will is free at all times, despite the apparent necessity of cause and effect. Don Quixote has a mission.

The writing and publication of the novel were certainly both tortured and strained. Yevgeny Pavlovich claims to know nothing about the debts, and Nastasya Filippovna’s motives become a subject of anxious speculation. First I suppose a short plot ifiota should be in order: Myshkin replies that Nastasya Filippovna is insane, that he only feels profound compassion and is not in love with her, but admits that he has come to Pavlovsk for her sake.
