150th ANNIVERSARY EDITION DOSTOYEVSKY- NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND WHITE NIGHTS, THE DREAM OF THE RIDICULOUS MAN and selections from THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD From the primitive peasant who kills without understanding that he is destroying a human life to the anxious antihero of Notes from Underground - a man who both craves and despies affection - this volume and its often-tormented characters showcase Dostoyevsky's evolving outlook on our fate. The compelling works presented here were written at distinct periods in the author's life, at decisisve moments in his grouping for a polticial philosophy and a religious answer. Thomas Mann described Dostoyevsky as 'an author whose Christian sympathy is ordinarily devoted to human misery, sin, vice, the depths of lust and crime, rather than to nobility of body and soul' and Notes from Underground as 'an awe and terror-inspiring examples of this sympathy.' Translated and with an Afterword by ANDREW R. MacANDREW. With an Introduction by BEN MARCUS
