One of the most influential authors from Russia's Golden Age, Fyodor Dostoevsky left behind a vast collection of prized literary works, including Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov. In The Idiot, Prince Myshkin possesses a childlike innocence and trusting nature that leaves him vulnerable to abuse by those around him. Returning to St. Petersburg to collect an inheritance, Myshkin realizes he is a stranger in a society obsessed with wealth, manipulation and power. Alan Myers translated this edition.
