Summary: (Book Jacket Status: Jacketed) This superb new translation--never before published--of one of Dostoevsky's major novels comes from the award-winning translators Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky.The Adolescent(originally published in English asA Raw Youth) is markedly different in tone from Dostoevsky's other masterpieces. It is told from the point of view of the nineteen-year-old narrator, whose immaturity, freshness, and na vete are unforgettably reflected in his narrative voi ...show morece. The illegitimate son of a landowner, Arkady Dolgoruky was raised by foster parents and tutors, and has scarcely ever seen his father, Versilov, and his mother, Versilov's peasant common-law wife. Arkady goes to Petersburg to meet this ''accidental family'' and to confront the father who dominates his imagination and whom he both disdains and longs to impress.
