They drove him mad and how I wanted him to leave both of them to their fate and go some other place where he would get peace of mind but they would not let him walk away. That is too much. His social ineptitude, his lack of imagination, his ve, his prejudices fiofor all of that might be fitting the time and place where he lives, but it is not objectively good.

In any case, I highly recommend this novel, one of my favorites. Immutable, transcendent ideas about which Russian writers always grapple. Dkstoievski, in a strange place, against a barrier. But I still enjoyed it, even if I didn’t get Dostoevsky’s underlying purpose a lot of the time. In Dostoyevsky married Anna Snitkin, his year old stenographer.
