The young girl is strangely drawn to this drunken ruin of a man, who exploits her & drives the family to poverty. But when she is rescued by an aristocratic family, the abuse against Netochkas delicate psyche continues in a more subtle way, condemning her to remain an outsider--a solitary spectator of a glittering society. Conceived as part of a novel on a grand scale, Netochka Nezvanova remained incomplete after Dostoyevsky was exiled to Siberia for revolutionary activities in 1849. With its depiction of the suffering, loneliness, madness & sin that affect both rich & poor in St Petersburg, it contains the great themes that were to dominate his later novels.
