Dostoevsky's Notes from Underground

by Richard Peace

Part of the BCP Critical Studies in Russian Literature Series

Dostoevsky's Notes from Underground Synopsis

This indispensible text can justly be regarded as the forerunner to the great flowering of Dostoevsky's novels which was to follow. The first part of this unusual work is often treated as a philosophical text in its own right; the second part illustrates the theory of the first by means of its own fictional practice. At the same time, the reader is introduced to the phenomenon of the 'Underground Man', one of the first genuine anti-heroes in European literature.
