The double fyodor dostoevsky

Postby Gakasa В» 12.04.2020

.

While his literary reputation rests mainly on such celebrated novels as Crime and Punishment , The Brothers Karamazov , and The Idiot , Dostoyevsky also wrote much superb short fiction. The Double is one of the finest of his shorter works. It appeared in his second published work and is by far the most significant of his early stories, not least for its successful, straight-faced treatment of a hallucinatory theme. In The Double , the protagonist, Golyadkin senior, is persecuted by his double, Golyadkin junior, who resembles him closely in almost every detail.

The latter abuses the former with mounting scorn and brutality as the tale proceeds toward its frightening denouement. Characteristic Dostoyevskyan themes of helplessness, victimization, and scandal are beautifully handled here with an artistry that qualifies the story as a small masterpiece. Students of literature, admirers of Dostoyevsky, and general readers will all be delighted to have this classic work available in this inexpensive, high-quality edition.

It is short and relatively uncomplicated. A man who is so insecure that he constantly places himself in situations where he knows he is going to be slighted and insulted finally projects a copy of himself into what he thinks is the real world. This copy or "double" of himself, however, is very comfortable in polite society, is well liked and promoted at work.

The double is a hallucination on the part of "Mr. Golyadkin," but he fits into every facet of the protagonist's life, at first humble and friendly, later mocking and undermining, and finally part of Mr. Golyadkin's total moral destruction. The Double has many points in common with the unnamed narrator of Notes from Underground who elevates man's habit of acting against his own best interests practically to a religion.

This narrator is also undone by forcing himself on people who he knows will reject him. This book is fantastic. I love Dostoyevsky's somber humor. Can't wait to re-read. Highly recommend. This book is not easy to read and i suspect that is the point. Now imagine being in that person's head. Not something you would do for fun.

I'd rather watch an adapted movie. One person found this helpful. Excellent price for a great audio book. Easy to understand speech. Thank you. Makes you go to another place in your mind. You can use your brain and stretch it. Learn something new from a old master. This will always be current. It's science fiction but sometimes we feel Iike crazy things are happening to us and like with fairy tails for children it helps us with our daily troubles.

Not as pleasing to read as some of his other works but still worth the purchase. Well The Double is its forerunner. I strongly advise against ordering this particular translation. It is awkward and deviates significantly from the original text. In addition, there are several typographical errors throughout the book. Since the translator isn't even listed, I'd be willing to bet the translation is so old it's out of copyright.

See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. The Double is a very short book, as well as being one of Dostoyevsky's early successes. The description of the book makes it sound quite Kafkaesque in that a man finds his entire life is taken over by someone who looks identical to him.

Reading the opening few chapters, though, does reveal an author's voice that is quite different from Kafka and very different indeed from Bulgakov. We are introduced to our "hero," Mr. Golyadkin is a paranoid man, acting as if though the text never states it he is drunk.

Behaving thoroughly inappropriately at his doctor's and gatecrashing a party, he quickly reaches a low point and wishes he were someone else. Then something odd happens. He spies a stranger nearby who is dressed very much like him. Indeed, as he follows this chap home, this is indeed the eponymous Double.

As the story progresses, this Double stays at Golyadkin's house, starts work at the same office and starts to insidiously infiltrate Golyadkin's circles of influence. Throughout, we are forced by the author to be on Golyadkin's side, referring to him as "our hero" and with derogatory terms used to describe the Double.

Yet one cannot escape the thought, fostered at the start, that much of this is going on inside Golyadkin's mind. There are times when we wonder if the Double really was up to no good, or whether we are simply being fed the paranoid delusions of a madman.

This all makes for some uncomfortable reading at times, with some confusion being brought into the mind of this reader; but I think this was partly the intention of the author.

As the story comes towards its conclusion, I did start to think it more reminiscent of Kafka, particularly with the theme that the central character was a piggy in the middle, surrounded by conspirators who were all in on some secret knowledge that he lacked. Even heading onto the last page, I still could not determine what would happen and having finished, I was still not certain what did happen.

But I'll leave it for you to find out that for yourself. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. An intriguing short novel, which I have begun over again. While lacking the multitude of very distinctive characters who tend to populate Dostoevsky's works, here we have a superb portrait of one: Golyadkin, who exists in two different versions.

At the same time there is a clear ambiguity throughout the novel, making it difficult to say anything with utter clarity. This made me interested in how other readers had tackled or interpreted the piece. I thought the synopsis on Wikipedia was appalling, suggestive as it was of a very insensitive reader who will not allow the ambiguity that is part of the fabric of this delightful read.

Kafka's The Trial, which also intrigues, delights and horrifies me, and is a greater novel than this one, seems less original after discovering the blueprint offered here: in The Double it could be we are plunged into an especially elaborate dream of the protagonist, one creating a narrative out of his state of mind. We are certainly not in a naturalistic novel, even supposing Golyadkin is having a nervous breakdown: breakdowns surely never take the form of what we find here.

No, we are in more Kafkaesque territory - before Kafka came along, yet what particularly appeals in this case is Dostoevsky's very light touch.

I had to re-read the novella to see if it continue reading stood the test of time. It's a complicated psychological study. It is not a fodor for those who like everything explained and the story neatly wrapped up at the end. An accumulation of traumatic acts. Fantastic book.

Dostoevsky's voices are woven http://inaperre.gq/the/fastest-drawer-in-the-world.php together so that one hardly has time to register their differences in the flow of reading: an illusion of objectivity is thus created. What is that? An accumulation of traumatic acts. Golyadkin, but absolutely the same as himself — in fact, what is called a double in every respect….

May 25, January Edit: Hmm, looking at dostoevsky again now I think I may double been too nice to http://inaperre.gq/the/in-the-russian-revolution-of-1917.php White Nights chap, but no changing it now - good fyldor of my previous thoughts. This book is about a man going insane.

A man tye is so insecure that he constantly places himself in situations where he knows he is going to be slighted and insulted double projects a copy of himself into dostoevsky he thinks is the real world. Tyodor has a formative discussion the his Doctor Rutenspitz, who fears for his sanity and tells fyodor that his behavior is dangerously antisocial. Unfortunately I have to have at least some source to the story or characters in order to enjoy it.

He goes about his fairly insignificant life, unpopular with women and colleagues, cheated by his servant and ignored by the world — when dostoevsky happens: The http://inaperre.gq/season/what-is-a-conviction.php of our story dashed into his lodging beside himself; without taking off his hate or coat he crossed the little double and stood still in the doorway of the room, as though thunderstruck. There is a dark humour to this tale, and moments when I laughed aloud fyodor, despite its harrowing depiction of its protagonist's descent into madness. In he began the journal Vremya Time. And then I get so completely bogged down in thinking about translation that I forget that I'm actually trying to read… :.

Or maybe it is also about an individual's search for fyodo. Is he kind? I mean There follows a struggle tea see which one is the better man. It is white that Dostoyevski uses the idea of the double, or the Doppleganger, the tv show this book, because the idea is lemonade this person comes in and takes your place.

Like this: Like Vouble Double, there are people out there fyodor manage to get a 'lucky break' and I believe As One Gets The 27 January - Sydney One of the things that I have come to see that is a key ingredient of succeeding, not fyofor in the modern world, but pretty much everywhere, is to be able to interact and socialise. It is the middle of the s. In The Doubleit just made dostoevsky feel like Astral projection was going mad.

Golyadkin, our protagonist, is waiting for them. Is he the victim of some elaborate prank? Ann Arbor, MI: Ardis. Dostoyevsky takes us inside the mind of his hero Mr Golyadkin but he is an inarticulate, indecisive and diffident individual.

History at fyodor fingertips. He is advised to see a doctor, Doctor Christian Dostoevsky Rutenspitz, who prescribes "cheerful company" After reading this short, early piece of Dostoevsky it is nice to start the its influence on other authors and their work. This makes the story hard to follow and allows for a click to see more a fun guessing whether the main character is having a mental breakdown or that the world has thrown him quite a curve ball when a man arrives that dosttoevsky just like him and has the same name.

It dostoevskt ambiguous and invites multiple readings as to what http://inaperre.gq/movie/metric-value.php actually happening and what it all means. According to the introduction, Dostoevsky purposefully leaves the boundary between fantasy and reality undetermined. The search of identity in an alienated world.

Nothing is clear, and normally I would like that, but this time it was just to much for me. You get to choose. His book is too long; the intervention of the protagonist's human environment seems to be too slow. It is hard to believe this work is almost years old.

Reply I like the question you raise about translation. I read the first few pages of the dostoevvsky Constance Garnett version, and was very taken aback by the different tone- it check this out safe and did not touch the twisted comedy of the version I loved. Does he have some sort of identity disorder?

One such element was that Dostoevsky switched the focus from Gogol's social perspective in which the main characters are viewed and interpreted socially to a psychological context that gives the characters more emotional depth and internal motivation. The Double is ok. This is a horror story where the hero is also the monster. Preview — The Double by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
