La quintaesencia de la novela rusa y una de las cumbres de la narrativa universal. Tras retratar magistralmente la figura culpable en Crimen y castigo, Dostoievski ahonda en El idiota en el alma torturada de un hombre inocente. El joven y piadoso prncipe Mishkin regresa a su Rusia natal de un sanatorio suizo donde ha estado varios aos para recibir una herencia y mezclarse con la gente. Sin embargo, en San Petersburgo solo le aguarda una sociedad obsesionada con el dinero, el poder y la manipulacin que pondr a prueba su moral y sus puros sentimientos. Antes de llegar a su destino conoce al inquietante Rogozhin, hijo de un acaudalado mercader, cuya fijacin por la hermosa Nastasia Filppovna acabar por arrastrar a los tres protagonistas a un fatal desenlace. Algunos de los ms caudalosos ros encuentran en Dostoievski su fuente, donde la nueva sed de Europa se abreva hoy... Es tan grande como Ibsen y Nietzsche, y quiz el ms importante de los tres. Andr Gide. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonskys masterful translation of The Idiot is destined to stand with their versions of Crime and Punishment, The Brothers Karamazov, and Demons as the definitive Dostoevsky in English. After his great portrayal of a guilty man in Crime and Punishment, Dostoevsky set out in The Idiot to portray a man of pure innocence. The twenty-six-year-old Prince Myshkin, following a stay of several years in a Swiss sanatorium, returns to Russia to collect an inheritance and be among people. Even before he reaches home he meets the dark Rogozhin, a rich merchants son whose obsession with the beautiful Nastasya Filippovna eventually draws all three of them into a tragic denouement. In Petersburg the prince finds himself a stranger in a society obsessed with money, power, and manipulation. Scandal escalates to murder as Dostoevsky traces the surprising effect of this positively beautiful man on the people around him, leading to a final scene that is one of the most powerful in all of world literature.
