      Dostoevsky s novel, Demons often falsely translated The Possessed, thereby erroneously stressing the object rather than the subject , is one of his most powerful books, a socio political work exploring 19th century ideas the demons current in Russia at the time, specifically European liberalism and nihilism in contrast to what was most important to Dostoevsky, Russian Orthodoxy, and in this sense the author seems a forerunner of Solzhenitzyn a century later, in our own time At times the novel se [...]

      My favorite extended quote from Demons Having devoted my energy to studying the question of the social organization of the future society which is to replace the present one, I have come to the conclusion that all creators of social systems from ancient times to our year have been dreamers, tale tellers, fools who contradicted themselves and understood precisely nothing of natural science or of that strange animal known as man Plato, Rousseau, Fourier, aluminum columns this is fit perhaps for sp [...]

      Fyodor Dostoyevsky s portrayal of human nature is so idiosyncratic that he simply can t be surpassed by anybody in this art.There always are some fashionable ideas and human beings, who can t think indepedably, prefer to follow this fashion blindly and those people are eventually used by the others They just become cat s paw And you know it all comes from that same half bakedness, that sentimentality They are fascinated, not by realism, but by the emotional ideal side of socialism, by the religi [...]

      Un romanzo complesso, impegnativo, anche pesante a tratti, ma Dostoevskij come sempre pur raccontando una storia particolare, con personaggi delineati nitidamente, riesce a parlare di qualcosa di universale, che riguarda l umanit tutta e ogni uomo, qualcosa che riguarda me.Albert Camus, che per vent anni ha lavorato ad una riduzione teatrale di questo romanzo, dice I demoni un romanzo profetico non solo perch annuncia il nostro nichilismo, ma anche perch mette in scena anime dilaniate o nti, inc [...]

      I was savoring every single page , but the library deadline suddenly forced me to plough through the second half in a single day I shall not review this book until I have thoroughly re read it, but the pages I read attentively were truly inspiring and posed the moral dilemmas that Russian literature and especially Dostoyevsky himself is famous for.Also a technical fact that made me worship the book was the simple fact that Dostoyevsky had used the characters full names EVERY SINGLE TIME As a lov [...]

      all dostoevsky s usual tricks are here his dense, documentary like prose, succession of dialogue heavy scenes leading up to a huge scandal, all his idiots and villains and beggers, his dark and keen psychological insight yup, it s all in demons, but, goddamn, did i find this a chore to read the characters, to me, felt too much as stand ins for albeit, insightful and interesting ideas, and the plotting was laborious and repetitive that said, it s amazing how the man laid out the breadcrumbs leadi [...]

      I wish I was eloquent enough so I could talk about Demons I m not I severely lack the necessary intellect that would allow me to analyze it or even say a few things worth mentioning, the way they should be said I will, however, state the obvious Demons has great, limitless philosophical value It s not a novel meant to be read as a pastime activity It s demanding of one s full attention and capacity and still, it might be necessary for one to go back several times in order to not lose grip of the [...]

      The likeness of the events in this novel to events that have happened recently, such as the shooting of the policemen in Dallas, or the attempted coup in Turkey, is incredible It seems to me like the people whom this novel revolves around are misguided, they are idealists, and they will stop at nothing to get what they want What is so interesting is that the ideas that they initially had, were sometimes good ones, the problems arised when people were starting to misinterpret ideas, or changing t [...]

      The quality and mastery of Dostoevsky s vision, and his use of character and plot and pacing, are all on display in this marvelous work It s true that perhaps it doesn t hold together as strongly as some of his other works but it s not true that this is a poor example of his work In some ways, it exceeds all of them, particularly through voice and narrative instability There perhaps is some reticence to include it amongst the greats due to politics and religion, both then and now Dostoevsky, the [...]

      I read many of Dostoyevsky s novels in Arabic translations many years ago, although they are poor translations from French and English copies, i considered Dostoyevsky as one of my top 5 novelists The Possessed is my first English translation i read.The greatest point of Dostoyevsky s art of novel is his characters, the most marginal character is will build and presented, there s no an ordinary shallow character Sometimes Dostoyevsky forget one character then let it play an important role like D [...]

      What Dostoyevsky diagnosed in this novel was the tendency to think of ideas as being somehow real than actual human beings The 19th Century Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote about characters who justified murder in the name of their ideological beliefs For this reason, John Gray argues, he s remained relevant ever since, through the rise of the totalitarian states of the 20th Century, to the war against terror.Dostoyevsky suggests that the result of abandoning morality for the sake of a [...]

      This is one of the few novels by Dostoyevsky that I haven t read, and I think it s not only his most political but also his most prescient in terms of today s world particularly the individual faced with corrupt systems, the movement toward anarchy and rebellion, and the webs of power that bind all individuals to their oppressive societies no matter how hard they strive to be free of these restrictions.I think Demons should be read after some of Dostoyevsky s intricately plotted and deeper psyc [...]
