About the Author

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (November 11 [O.S. October 30] 1821 � February 9 [O.S. January 28] 1881) is considered one of two greatest prose writers of Russian literature, alongside close contemporary Leo Tolstoy. Dostoevsky's works have had a profound and lasting effect on twentieth-century thought and world literature.

Dostoevsky's chief ouevre, mainly novels, explore the human psychology in the disturbing political, social and spiritual context of his 19th-century Russian society. Considered by many as a founder or precursor of 20th-century existentialism, his Notes from Underground (1864), written in the anonymous, embittered voice of the Underground Man, is considered by Walter Kaufmann as the "best overture for existentialism ever written."

I read this for one of my college literature classes and, surprisingly, enjoyed it. It's not often that a reader gets to see inside the mind of a killer in literature, as we do in C&P. I t's even rarer in classic literature. I liked it so much that  I am thinking of teaching it myself, after I graduate of course.
