Publisher's Summary

In "Notes from Underground" by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, we are not talking about revolutionary personalities, a secret struggle for some ideas or about a curtain of secrets and mysteries. The hero of the "underground", the author of the notes, is a collegiate assessor who retired after receiving a small inheritance. He lives poorly, in a wretched room on the outskirts of Petersburg. And the "underground" is psychological. Almost always he is alone, betrayed by unrestrained "dreaming", explores his own consciousness and his own soul. The purpose of his confession is "to test whether is it possible at all to be completely frank with oneself and not to be afraid of all the truth". Illustrated by Andronum.

An evaluation of humanity by an introvert

The philosophical questioning of the ability of man to seek what is advantageous resulting in happiness. Even the most educated men can not always say they do what is advantageous to their self interest because the actual control over our emotions is not rational.

Uninhibited ravings of a vulnerable and dangerous neurotic. Great stuff.

Uninhibited ravings of a vulnerable and dangerous neurotic. Mixed with remarkably prescient musings about the nature of modern society. Searingly honest and a foundation for what came next. Great stuff.
