  • "Proslulý psychologický román, v němž Dostojevský zobrazuje ideál dokonalého a krásného člověka. Hlavní hrdina kníže Myškin okouzluje svou nevinností a vyrovnaností prostředí ruských měšťáků a kupců, lidi mravně a citově."
  • "Returning to Russia from a sanitarium in Switzerland, the Christ-like epileptic Prince Myshkin finds himself enmeshed in a tangle of love, torn between two women, the notorious kept woman Nastasya and the pure Aglaia, both involed, in turn, with the corrupt, money-hungry Ganya."

  • "Inspired by an image of Christ's suffering, Fyodor Dostoyevsky set out to portray "a truly beautiful soul" colliding with the brutal reality of contemporary society. Returning to St. Petersburg from a Swiss sanatorium, the gentle and naive Prince Myshkin -- known as "the idiot"--Pays a visit to his distant relative General Yepanchin and proceeds to charm the General and his circle. But after becoming infatuated with the beautiful Nastasya Filippovna, Myshkin finds himself caught up in a love triangle and drawn into a web of blackmail, betrayal, and, ultimately, murder."@en

  • "A Russian prince returns to Saint Petersburg after a long absence in Switzerland, where he was undergoing treatment for epilepsy. On the train he meets and befriends a man of low origins. This man becomes the dark counterpart of the inherently good prince; the two can also be seen as Christ- and devil-like figures. Dostoevsky wished to portray an unspoiled man, whose goodness is plunged into the chaos of Saint Petersberg society and a passionate contest for the disreputable Nastasya."

  • "Prince Myshkin, a good yet simple man, is out of place in the corrupt world obsessed by wealth, power, and sexual conquest created by Russia's elite ruling class, as he becomes caught in the middle of a violent love triangle with two women who become rivals for his attention. Extortion and scandal escalate to murder, as Dostoevsky's [the author] "positively beautiful man" clashes with the emptiness of a society that cannot accommodate his innocence and moral idealism. [The novel] is both [an] indictment of that society and a rich and gripping masterpiece.-- dust jacket."
  • "Prince Myshkin has just returned to Russia after several years in a Swiss sanitarium and soon finds himself in a complicated love triangle. Myshkin's honesty, goodness, and integrity are shown to be unequal to the moral emptiness of those around him."
  • "Proslulý psychologický román, v němž Dostojevský zobrazuje ideál dokonalého a krásného člověka. Hlavní hrdina kníže Myškin okouzluje svou nevinností a vyrovnaností prostředí ruských měšťáků a kupců, lidi mravně a citově narušené, nedokáže však v nich vzkřísit člověka a hyne spolu s nimi. Autor ukazuje hrdinu jako typ, který by mohl obrodit svět, přičemž čtenář poznává, že hrdina svou filosofií pokory a všelásky přivádí do neštěstí i ty, které miluje, a nakonec sám sebe."
  • "After fifteen years of treatment for epilepsy in a Swiss institution, Prince Mishkin returns to St. Petersburg to find a jaded mid-19th century social world. At first the kindly, almost childlike prince is taken for an idiot. But the two most beautiful women in town are soon competing for his affections in a duel that grows increasingly dangerous."

  • "Récit riche en rebondissements, "L'Idiot" est à l'image de la sainte Russie, vibrant et démesuré. Son héros est l'homme tendu vers le bien mais harcelé par le mal."
  • "The Idiot is a novel written by the Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky and first published in 1868. Dostoevsky originally considered entitling the work 'Prince Myshkin', after the central character who returns to Russia after a long absence. Myshkin suffers from epilepsy? just like Fyodor Dostoevsky himself? and is prone to periods of blackouts. This has been treated with some success in Switzerland. The Myshkin family line is said to end with him and his cousin. On the train to Saint Petersburg, Myshkin meets and befriends the dark and enamoured Rogozhin. The latter tells the prince about his."@en
  • "A classic by a Russian master Prince Myshkin, the idiot, is an almost comically innocent Christ figure in a land of sinners, one whose faith in beauty contrasts sharply with that of his society's."@en
  • ""C'est marqué par toutes sortes d'expériences dramatiques (condamnation à mort et grâce du tsar, déportation, crises d'épilepsie, perte d'un premier enfant, déboires au jeu ...), que Dostoïevski écrivit L'Idiot, publié en 1868-1869."
  • "A saintly man, Prince Myshkin, is thrust into the heart of a society more concerned with wealth, power, and sexual conquest than the ideals of Christianity. Myshkin 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, testing the wreckage left by human misery to find "man in man""@en

  • "GENERAL & LITERARY FICTION. Prince Myshkin returns to Russia from an asylum in Switzerland. As he becomes embroiled in the frantic amatory and financial intrigues which centre around a cast of brilliantly realised characters and which ultimately lead to tragedy, he emerges as a unique combination of the Christian ideal of perfection and Dostoevsky's own views, afflictions and manners. His serene selflessness is contrasted with the worldly qualities of every other character in the novel. Dostoevsky supplies a harsh indictment of the Russian ruling class of his day who have created a world which cannot accomodate the goodness of this idiot."

In this literary classic, he focuses on a nobleman, whose gentle, child-like nature has earned him the nickname of "the idiot."A superb, panoramic view of mid-19th-century Russian manners, morals and philosophy."@en
