A Raw Youth (The Adolescent) is Fyodor Dostoyevsky's 1875 novel which
tells the story of the life of a 19-year-old intellectual, Arkady
Dolgoruky, who is the illegitimate child of the controversial and
womanizing landowner Versilov. The novel focuses primarily on the conflict
that arises between Arkady and Versilov, when Arkady rejoins his family in
St. Petersburg. Arkady who has been away at boarding school hardly knows
his family and when he comes to learn more about them he becomes embroiled
in the scandalous affairs of his father. Rich with the depictions of the
complex psychological, emotional, and moral conflicts that plague the human
condition and are so common to the characters of Dostoyevsky's work, A Raw
Youth (The Adolescent) is a classic work by an author who many consider as
the greatest to ever have lived.
