The Possessed, etc

Based on a true event, in which a young revolutionary was murdered by his comrades, The Possessed provoked a storm of controversy for its harsh depiction of a ruthless band of Russian intellectuals, atheists, socialists, anarchists, and other radicals who attempt to incite the population of a small provincial town to revolt against the government. In contrast to Dostoevsky's savage portrait of these radicals and the violent ideas that have possessed them like demons, the author expresses great sympathy for workers and other ordinary people ill-served by those who presume to speak in their name.

  • "Third of Dostoyevsky's five major novels. It is a powerful political tract and a profound study of a theism, depicting disarray which follows the appearence of a band of modish radicals in a small provincial town. The novel is full of buffoonery and grotesque comedy."
