Imagine 19th century Russian literature as a loud boisterous party Here s Pushkin basking in the center of attention charming up all the ladies Here are Chekhov and Gogol at the heart of a passionate intellectual argument Here s Count Tolstoy busily serving canap s while rejoicing in the pleasure of work stopping only to chat about the pleasures of countryside with Turgenev But where s Dostoyevsky Oh there he is sitting by himself in a dark corner dead broke after a high stakes cards game giving you the unsettling intense heavy glare that easily penetrates right into the darkest best guarded secrets of your soul the glare that clearly says been there done that been repulsed by what I saw And if he looks like he s judging you it s because he is And you deserve it probablyFyodor Mikhailovich you don t make liking you easy do you This book is brilliant Unpleasant and hard to read disturbing and unsettling and really brilliant But before I go into my long winded discussion let me get this off my chest for the honesty purposes and full disclosureI finally can admit I don t get Dostoyevsky Perhaps my mind is a tad too shallow for his literary depths perhaps my inner ball of sunshine deep deep inside refuses to see the world through Dostoyevsky s disillusioned glareBut I don t need to get him to know the greatness when I see it to respect his sharp writing his keenly observant eye that does not let anything slip away and his scarily clear perceptions of people and the layers in which they dress up their otherwise petty and pathetic selvesIn this short and strange book Dostoyevsky manages to create perhaps the most disturbing image of a human being in the entire 19th century literature Let me jot down just a few of the epithets that came pouring into my head with every page I read petty bitter miserly resentful selfish pitiful entitled cruel deeply unpleasant and frankly miserable The person who finds disgusting satisfaction in little acts of petty nastiness The person who perversely enjoys stewing in self imposed misery and figurative self flagellation over every perceived slight building exuisite mountains out of molehills The person who would thrive on humiliating others but if unable to achieve that would just as happily thrive on self humiliation and self loathing The person who in the confines of his little mind hides a true despot but gets his sense of self worth by assuming that everyone else is beneath his miserable but clearly enlightened and misunderstood self despite the world pointing to the contrary The person who d uietly spit into your bowl if you haven t offered to share it with him and then will internally torment himself for years over the act feeling that the act of torment is enough to elevate him out of the mud The person who in ramblings about how rotten society is helps it rot a little bit In short he created a character the sheer mention of whom makes me want to take a shower and wash all of the above off meHe created a character that with all of the above scarily reminds you of so many people you know and maybe sometimes even yourselfAnd that s what really disturbing about itAnd this disturbing part is exactly what makes me from time to time abandon the fun bits of the Russian literature party and instead join Fyodor Mikhailovich in his dark gloomy corner for a minute or so Because he makes me unpleasant as it is take a long critical look at myself so that I can try to keep myself out of this underground Because he gets to me even if I don t uite get him Because it s not a story it s a mirror and you have to work hard to make it not be soI don t know how to rate this book I did not enjoy it how can you but it made a sizeable imprint on my soul Stars are irrelevant here so I ll randomly pick something 4 Written in Munich airport stuck on an unscheduled 20hr layover with almost no sleep and beginnings of jet lag

Записки из подполья Read & Download ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Man’s essentially irrational natureRichard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky whose Dostoevsky translations have become the standard give us a brilliantly faithful edition of this classic novel conveying all the tragedy and tormented comedy of the original. Dostoevsky leads us into the deepest recesses of human consciousness a mire of stinky sewers feted pits and foul smelling rat holes novel as existential torment and alienation Do you envision a utopia founded on the principals of love and universal brotherhood If so beware the underground man And what is it about the underground Well ladies and gentlemen here are several uotes from the text with my commentsI would now like to tell you gentlemen whether you do or do not wish to hear it why I never managed to become even an insect I ll tell you solemnly that I wanted many times to become an insect The underground man s opening reflections form the first part of this short novel He is forty years old sits in his apartment arms folded brooding about life and death telling us all about his underbelly ish plight as a man mouse speaking about the subject giving him the greatest pleasure himselfIf man has not become bloodthirsty from civilization at any rate he has certainly become bloodthirsty in a worse a viler way than formerly The underground man spews out his view of others If all humankind were to succumb to plague and die a horrible anguished death we can see in our mind s eye the underground man chuckling to himself and thinking every single minute of the excruciating pain of all those millions of men and women and children were well deserved But in all fairness the underground man tells us he has a sensitive streak being as insecure and touchy as a hunchback or dwarfTwo times two is four has a cocky look it stands across your path arms akimbo and spits I agree that two times two is four is an excellent thing but if we re going to start praising everything then two times two is five is sometimes also a most charming little thing The underground man despises nature and the laws of nature One can imagine how he would react if someone spoke of the philosophy of harmony or compassion suinting his eyes grinding his teeth and clenching his fists so hard blood would appear on his palmsOf Simonov s two guests one was Ferfichkin from Russian German stock short monkey faced a fool who comically mimicked everyone my bitterest enemy even in the lower grades a mean impudent little fanfaron who played at being most ticklish ambitious though of course he was a coward at heart Here we have the underground man s reflections on encountering someone from his boyhood past If you think the underground man would have less flattering things to say about you if he saw you talking in a railway station or eating at a restaurant please continue reading The underground man s hatred and bitterness reaches a high pitch by simply being around three of his former acuaintances Has there ever been a comical and compelling scene in all of literatureThat night I had the most hideous dreams No wonder all evening I was oppressed by recollections of the penal servitude of my school years and I could not get rid of them I had been tucked away in that school by distant relations whose dependent I was and of whom I had no notion thereafter tucked away orphaned already beaten down by their reproaches already pensive taciturn gazing wildly about at everything My schoolfellows met me with spiteful and merciless derision because I was not like any of them I immediately began to hate them and shut myself away from everyone in timorous wounded and inordinate pride The underground man deals with a cab driver a young prostitute and his servant Such nastiness such viciousness every single encounter vivid and memorable Dostoyevsky at his finestWe re stillborn and have long ceased to be born of living fathers and we like this and We re acuiring a taste for it Soon we ll contrive to be born somehow from an idea But enough I don t want to write any from Underground You may forget other works of literature you have read however I can assure you once you have read the underground man s notes it will be an experience you will not soon forget
