The idiot : notes by G. K Carey( )

5 editions published between 1968 and 2002 in English and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Idiot, Prince Myshkin, a saintly man, is thrust into the heart of a society obsessed with wealth, power, and sexual conquest. He soon finds himself at the center of a violent love triangle in which a notorious woman and a beautiful young girl become rivals for his affections. Extortion, scandal, and murder follow, as Dostoevsky's "positively good man" clashes with the emptiness of a society that cannot accommodate his moral idealism. This wonderfully fresh and faithful translation-never before published-is sure to become the definitive edition in English
