?My intention is to portray a really beautiful soul.??Dostoevsky In The Idiot, 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.? The Idiot is a quintessentially Russian novel, one that penetrates the complex psyche of the Russian people. ?They call me a psychologist,? wrote Dostoevsky. ?That is not true. I'm only a realist in the higher sense; that is, I portray all the depths of the human soul.?
