Fyodor Dostoevsky's work The Idiot was published in Russia in the nineteenth century. It was initially serialised in 1868–69 in the newspaper The Russian Messenger. The title is a satirical allusion to the novel's principal character, Prince Lev Nikolayevich Myshkin, a young man whose benevolence, open-hearted innocence, and guilelessness cause many of the novel's more worldly characters to believe he lacks brains and understanding. Dostoevsky gave himself the goal of portraying "the positively nice and lovely man" in the figure of Prince Myshkin. The storey explores the implications of putting such a peculiar character at the centre of worldly society's conflicts, wants, passions, and egoism, both for the guy and for others with whom he gets connected.
