Description

This Bilingual English-Russian Edition includes in original famous novel "The Idiot " by Fyodor Dostoevsky, translated by Eva M. Martin (1883–1940) in 1915 and illustrated (11 illustrations) by Maria Tsaneva. The text is arranged in parallel English-Russian chapters (the Russian are marked Italic). This is a great way to read and listen to both English and Russian text.You can read the entire chapter in English or in Russian, or you can follow along as each individual English paragraph is paired with the corresponding Russian paragraph. The text is relatively not very simple, vocabulary and grammar wise, so for beginners this should be a great challenge.
The Idiot is a novel written by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. It was first published serially in The Russian Messenger between 1868 and 1869. The Idiot, alongside some of Dostoyevsky's other works, is often considered one of the most brilliant literary achievements of the "Golden Age" of Russian literature. Joseph Frank has called The Idiot "perhaps the most original of Dostoevsky's great novels, and certainly the most artistically rough of them all. Elizabeth Dalton wrote that in The Idiot, more than in any other of Dostoevsky's works, we are shown "the actual experience itself" of one mind wrestling with the various tensions of life – rather than simply dwelling on "intellectual speculation," as we see in Crime and Punishment and Notes from Underground. Richard Pevear called The Idiot "Dostoevsky's most autobiographical novel," and notes that, in contrast to Crime and Punishment; setting has very little importance in this novel: "Russia is present in the novel not as a place but as a question – the essence of Russia, the role of Russia and the "Russian Christ" in Europe and in the world."
