Publisher's Summary

Dostoevsky's most revolutionary novel, "Notes from Underground" marks the dividing line between nineteenth- and twentieth-century fiction, and between the visions of self each century embodied. One of the most remarkable characters in literature, the unnamed narrator is a former official who has defiantly withdrawn into an underground existence. In full retreat from society, he scrawls a passionate, obsessive, self-contradictory narrative that serves as a devastating attack on social utopianism and an assertion of man's essentially irrational nature.

Absolutely necessary.

This, piece of literature, so stirs the emotions, both good and bad, that you may find yourself laughing, crying and becoming furious within the span of 10 minutes. I have a new respect for myself and what I am capable of inflicting on another. this man is all of us, and none of us.

A definition of suffering

Complicated, deeply neurotic, dark, depressed, oftentimes horrific and anxiety provoking, even humurous at times, ..indeed from the underground.
