Review of Notes from Underground by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

This review was written by Eugene Kernes

Genre = Novel

Elaborate Description

This book has two parts which are a philosophical diary and a short narrative. Both parts are meant to be taken from someone who is in his own corner of the world. As a sort of outsider looking into the functions of society. The diary consistence of many philosophical entries with include the role of nature, the actions of people who wish to help others, and writing itself. The narrative contains a duel and love.

There is much to this book but it is either tediously written or poorly translated. It does portray the human condition well with depth and complexity. Has good flow in an inconsistent psychological way.
