Published in 1864, Notes of the Basement is considered the author of the first masterpiece – the book in which he “became” Dostoyevsky – and is considered the source of all his later works.Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, whose acclaimed translations of the Karamazov Brothers and Crime and Punishment have become standard English versions, now give us a superb rendering of this classic debut.Presented as the fiction of excuses and the confession of the underground man – a former official miner of the mid-19th century in Russia, whose name Dostoyevsky leaves no name, as one critic wrote it,”because” I “is us all” – the novel is divided into two parts: the first, a half-desperate, half-critical political mockingbird, the second, a powerful, to the right, and the third.”The extraordinary book style style with brilliance violate the literary conventions in a way that had never been attempted before shocked of its first readers and still shocks of many Russians today.This magnificent new translation captures for the first time, the whole astonishing peculiarity of the original.
