Demons by Fyodor Dostoevsky [Annotated]
The publisher's special commentary chapter and the author's biography are included in this version.
Demons by Fyodor Dostoevsky is a novel written in 1872. The English translation of this book is titled The Possessed, while Dostoyevsky scholars and later translations favor the titles The Devils or Demons.
Demons is an extremely political book. It is a testimonial of life in Imperial Russia in the late 19th century. As the revolutionary democrats begin to rise in Russia, different ideologies begin to collide. Dostoyevsky casts a critical eye on both the left-wing idealists, portraying their ideas and ideological foundation as demonic, and the conservative establishment's ineptitude in dealing with those ideas and their social consequences.
