Welcome back for another episode of Good Scribes Only. Today we’re discussing Fyodor Dostoevsky’s legendary novella, Notes from Underground. The story is split in two parts: 1) a rambling memoir-style philosophical treatise from the book’s main lead “Underground Man,” and 2) a short but hilarious and incisive glimpse into the Underground Man’s personal life. Dostoevsky is known as one of Russia’s great bards having written other classics such as Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karzamov. If you appreciate existential fiction and classic literature, you are in for quite a right with this 115 page story.
This innovative novella is bizarre on loads of levels, and we enjoyed every minute of it. We hope you will too. ✌️
