Notes From UndergroundBook - 2006
The underground man had always felt like an outsider. He doesn't want to be like other people, working in the 'ant-hill' of society. So he decides to withdraw from the world, scrawling a series of darkly sarcastic notes about the torment he is suffering. Angry and alienated, his only comfort is the humiliation of others.
Is he going mad?
Or is it the world around him that's insane?
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
A short story of a troubled 19th c. Russian bureaucrat in two parts. The first is a bit confusing as it is only a psychological prologue by the man on himself.
The second part is the actual story, which involves the man and his terrible relations with his old school colleagues, and with a young prostitute.
This is a great introduction to Dostoevsky I think, since it is so short and yet fully "Dostoevskian."
