Fyodor Dostoyevsky The Idiot


"The Idiot" is Fyodor Dostoyevsky's 1868 novel which tells the story of Prince Lyov Nikolayevich Myshkin who, after a long absence, returns to Russia from Switzerland where he sought treatment for his epilepsy. The story is primarily a tragic tale of the struggle for the love of a woman, Nastasya Filippovna, between Myshkin and Rogozhin, a dark and impassioned man that the Prince meets on the train to St. Petersburg. «The Idiot» is a classic tale of the conflict between good and evil. On the one hand Prince Myshkin represents Dostoyevksy's attempt to portray a Christ-like «positively good man» which is sharply contrasted with not only the dark and roguish character of Rogozhin but also with the nature of Russian upper-class society depicted in the novel.

Mary Prince The History of Mary Prince


First published in 1831, “The History of Mary Prince” is the fascinating autobiography of the life of Mary Prince, who was born into slavery in Bermuda. It was the first time the story of a black woman was published in the United Kingdom and it was widely read and reprinted numerous times. It was also very influential to the growing abolitionist movement and increased the anti-slavery sentiment that was gaining popularity in England. Prince was born in 1788 and her parents were both enslaved by different masters. Prince lived with her mother and siblings as household servants until she was sold at age 12 to a series of cruel and brutal masters. Prince was sold a final time in 1815 and her new master eventually took her to England with his family in 1828. Prince was able to gain a certain amount of freedom from her owner in England and she eventually came to work for Thomas Pringle, an abolitionist writer. He convinced Prince to have her life story transcribed and the shocking and brutal tale that emerged affected readers deeply. “The History of Mary Prince” remains an important historical account of the horrors and injustice of slavery.
