Richard Pevear and Larisa Volkhonsky are really at the top of their game here, too. In fact, I have moved their translation of Brothers Karamozov to the top of my to read list now as a result of reading this and Demons. I like all of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's books; and I've read everything that he wrote except for one or two of the page-length stories. This story, The Raw Youth, is really a novel about nothing. Fyodor Dostoevsky's The Adolescent was first published in Russia with the literally translated title of A Raw Youth in 1875, and is presented in Dora O'Brien's new translation by Alma Books.

Similar to all of Dostoevsky's great novels, the greatness of The Adolescent is not in the actually plot, but rather, is a result of the deeply insightful, brutally honest and endlessly fascinating portrayal of man and society. The most noticeable difference in The Adolescent is the narrative form.

Fyodor Dostoevsky, Richard Pevear (translator), Larissa Volokhonsky (translator).

The narrator and protagonist of Dostoevsky’s novel The Adolescent (first published in English as A Raw Youth) is Arkady Dolgoruky, a na•ve 19-year-old boy bursting with ambition and opinions. The illegitimate son of a dissipated landowner, he is torn between his desire to expose his father’s wrongdoing and the desire to win his love. He travels to St. Petersburg to confront the father he barely knows, inspired by an inchoate dream of communion and armed with a mysterious document that he believes gives him power over others. This new English version by the most acclaimed of Dostoevsky’s translators is a masterpiece of pathos and high comedy.

I was surprised by some of the insights into Dostoevsky's childhood and psyche when I read this, and of course his insights about society more broadly. There are a fair number of interesting twists and turns, this novel can almost be read as a prequel to the underground man. I can see why Dostoyevsky was able to write Brothers Karamazov and his popular journal afterwards, the writing of this novel likely helped him process childhood trauma.

Classic Dostoevsky. Irreverent, honest, penetrating, humorous. Don't assume because you haven't heard of The Adolescent along with Brothers K. and Crime and Punishment that this is a secondary novel. It is top rank and completely gripping.

The Adolescent must, in my opinion, be acknowledged one of Dostoevsky's masterpieces. The Adolescent, Dostoevsky's second-to-last novel, stands on par with The Brothers Karamazov, The Idiot, Crime & Punishment, Devils, and Notes from Underground.

It difficult for me to understand why some critics have dismissed The Adolescent as a substandard work, or, as is the case in some instances, why others have omitted entirely a discussion of the novel in their critical works.

The plot centers around the narrator Arkady, who, having graduated from High-School, arrives in Petersburg to become acquainted for the first time with Petersburg society, as well as with his biological family, with whom he had had very little contact with since the days if his early childhood. Arkady is an illegitimate son: his father a nobleman; his mother a former household serf.

Adding to the drama is the fact that when Arkady arrives in Petersburg he has with him a sought-after document that could be used to extort and control several important people. One such person is the beautiful and enchanting Katerina Nikolaevna, with whom Arkady and his father, Verislov are both madly in love.

Similar to all of Dostoevsky's great novels, the greatness of The Adolescent is not in the actually plot, but rather, is a result of the deeply insightful, brutally honest and endlessly fascinating portrayal of man and society.

The most noticeable difference in The Adolescent is the narrative form. The novel is written in the first-person, expressing the point of view of the Adolescent himself.

Another difference in The Adolescent is that it does not contain the absolute forms of personality-types that are prominent in the other major novels. This is true more for Arkady than for Verislov. Instead one finds layered hybrids and a more ordinary

As a result of these differences -- which, by the way, I consider to be a great strength of this novel -- one will find that the character of the adolescent (that is, of Arkady Makarovich Dolgoruky) offers the most in-depth, most layered, and above all the most realistic psychological portrait of Dostoevsky's entire literary output. In Arkady one finds traces of a number of Dostoevskian character-types, i.e.: the Underground Man, Prince Myshkin, and Aloysha Karamazov. Yet, unlike those characters, Arkady is a much more ordinary, familiar and altogether realistic character in terms of both his personality and the circumstances in which he is to observed.

If you are new to Dostoevsky, I recommend starting with Crime and Punishment and then moving on to The Brothers Karamazov. If you enjoyed those books and find yourself left wanting more, then The Adolescent, in my opinion, would be a good place to turn and is sure to be an enjoyable and memorable reading experience.

A great read from my favorite Russian author. Maybe one of his best.

All told, anyone who likes Dostoevsky should read this, though all his major works should be read first, while those who have read a novel or two and not been particularly thrilled may wish to skip to this one.

I'm a big fan of Dostoevsky and have read most of his other work so I thought I'd give this one a try. It had it's moments, but I had to force myself to finish. That never happened reading his other novels.

Very good, typical Dostoevsky story, good at showing a young man growing up in society, not an easy read but worth the effort.

The above quote is from page one of the novel. So many of these reviews say that the narrator is nineteen, or 18-19. He's almost 21. Read the book.

The new title by Pevear and Volokhonsky seems wrong. A Raw Youth, the earlier title, isn't any better, being somewhat archaic in English. Apparently Prodrostok, the Russian title, means teenager, but it has other connotations in Russian for which there's no exact English counterpart. Adolescent is from the French, originally from Latin. To me it means a psychological stage in growth that is earlier than the age of our young man.

The novel always held my interest, but it is clearly at a lower level of artistic inspiration than the other late great novels - Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, Demons, and The Brothers Karamazov. That some scholar can say of the book, The Adolescent is the most captivating of Dostoevsky's novels, seems so far off the mark as to be risible. Many of the reviewers here also claim it's among his best. To each his own, but I will say that it feels to me that my perusal of Dostoevsky's books would be incomplete without reading this book. I'll have to read it again some day to figure out what it's all about. The style of our twenty-year old is elliptical. But I had the same trouble with the other novels. One reading hardly begins to expose their "lovely reek." Dostoevsky throws you into his maelstrom and you have to figure out some way not to drown.

I loved someone's comment that Dostoevsky is pure soul. But this soul is so steeped in humiliation and shame, it cannot be that the soul need be so steeped. The soul is notoriously accessible also at the high end, in love, wonder, happiness, and compassion. In fact Dostoevsky's characters find the soul in both places, though there is a heavy preponderance of the low end.
