One of the most revolutionary of Dostoyevsky’s novels, Notes from Underground was first published in 1864. Considered as one of the earliest existentialist novels, it explores the life of an unnamed narrator, an ex-official, who has retreated underground as a protest against the social utopia. Through one of the most celebrated characters in literature, the unnamed narrator, Dostoevsky brings forth the nuanced existence of the society’s moral expectations. In a complete fall out from the society, the novel’s anti-hero, or otherwise known as the underground man, writes a passionate, subversive and self-opposing account that examines the moral and intellectual fluctuations of the narrator and celebrates man’s inherently illogical nature.

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky was born in Moscow on vember 11, 1821. He is known for his profound understanding of human psychology and his ability to bring forth the darkest realms of human nature. Dostoevsky inspired a number of modern movements including Existentialism, literary criticism and many schools of psychology and theology. He influenced a number of modern philosophers and writers including Anton Chekov, George Orwell and Jean-Paul Sartre. He is best known for his novels tes from Underground (1864), Crime and Punishment (1866), The Idiot (serialized from 1868 to 1869) The Possessed or otherwise known as Demons (serialised from 1871 to 1872) and The Brothers Karamazov (serialised from 1879 to 1880).
