Oscar Wilde claimed that 'Humiliated and Insulted' is not "at all inferior to the other great masterpieces" and Friedrich Nietzsche is said to have wept over it. Its construction is that of an intricate detective novel, and the reader is plunged into a world of moral degradation, childhood trauma and, above all, unrequited love and irreconcilable relationships. At the centre of the story are a young struggling author, an orphaned teenager and a depraved aristocrat, who not only foreshadows the great figures of evil in Dostoevsky's later fiction, but is a powerful literary presence in his own right. This new translation catches the verve and tumult of the original, which - in concept and execution - affords a refreshingly unfamiliar glimpse of the author.
Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881) is considered one of the greatest writers of all times. His works include such seminal novels as 'Crime and Punishment', 'The Idiot' and 'The Karamazov Brothers'.
