The novelette contains two quite different parts. In the first part the underground man introduces himself, complaining and railing against progress and anything that is scientific. The second part is a flashback to when he was twenty-four years old, recounting some bizarre incidents from his social life: deep resentment against an officer, and against fellow schoolmates which culminate in a disastrous dinner party, and his meeting of Liza-the proverbial lonely prostitute with the golden heart.
In the end one is left pondering whether there's love and redemption in the human-or only perversion.

About the Author

Few authors have been as personally familiar with desperation as Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881), and none have been so adept at describing it. His harrowing experiences in Russian prisons, combined with a profound religious philosophy, formed the basis for his greatest books: Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, The Possessed, and The Brothers Karamazov. When Dostoevsky died in 1881, he left a legacy of masterful novels that immortalized him as a giant of Russian literature.
