  • "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."@en
  • "Twenty-six-year-old Prince Lev Nikolayevich Myshkin returns to Russia after spending several years at a Swiss sanatorium. Scorned by the society of St. Petersburgh for his idiocy, generosity and innocence, he finds himself at the centre of a struggle between a beautiful kept woman and a gorgeous, virtuous girl, both of whom win his affection. Unfortunately, Myshkin's very goodness seems to precipitate disaster, leaving the impression that, in a world obsessed with money, power, and sexual conquest, a sanatorium may be the only place for a saint. --wikipedia.com."@en

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

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."

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."

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "When Prince Nikolayevich Myshkin returns to St. Petersburg from a Swiss sanatorium, he meets two very different women: the beautiful and headstrong Aglaya Yepanchin and Nastassya Filippovna, a woman with a questionable reputation and an ambiguous rich benefactor. Myshkin, a gentle and naIve man, falls in love with both women, but his kind and compassionate nature hinders his ability to navigate both his emotions regarding the two women and intrigues of St. Petersburg society. Along with Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov, The Idiot has become one of Fyodor Dostoevsky's most famous and popular novels.

  • "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.

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."
  • "Lef Nikolayevitch Muishkin is one of the great characters in Russian literature. Is he a saint or just naive, an idealist or, as many in General Yepanchin's society feel, an 'idiot'? Certainly, his return to St. Petersburg after years in a Swiss clinic has a dramatic effect on the beautiful Aglaya, youngest of the Yepanchin daughters and on the charismatic but wilful Nastasia Phillipovna. As he paints a vivid picture of Russian society, Dostoevsky shows how principles conflict with emotions- with tragic results.""
