O jogador: Das memórias de um jovem

Editora Schwarcz - Companhia das Letras

De um dos grandes mestres da literatura russa, um romance perturbador sobre o vício destrutivo do jogo.Impressionante retrato psicológico do vício destrutivo do jogo, compulsão que o próprio Dostoiévski conhecia intimamente, O jogador retrata com perfeição a busca incessante por uma lógica que norteie o acaso e a necessidade de controle que acometem todo jogador inveterado. Numa estação de águas na sugestiva cidade alemã de Roletemburgo, Aleksei Ivánovitch, jovem professor de origens humildes, vivencia a emoção do jogo e o infortúnio amoroso enquanto tenta entender as confabulações que definirão o seu destino e o de seus próximos. Num ambiente em que fortunas se dilapidam e o futuro se decide ao sabor da sorte, a tentação do risco e a necessidade imperiosa de experimentar o abismo são o motor deste que continua sendo um dos romances mais perturbadores que o século XIX viu nascer.

Table of Contents: Crime and Punishment The Brother's Karamazov The Idiot Notes from Underground The Gambler Demons (The Possessed / The Devil Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881) was a Russian novelist and short-story writer. His writing is steeped in deep psychology and the exploration of human nature, while it also accurately depicts the Russian reality of his times. Dostoyevsky is usually regarded as one of the finest novelists who ever lived. In his time he was also renowned for his activity as a journalist. Each of Dostoevsky´s works is famous for its psychological profundity, and, indeed, Dostoyevsky is commonly regarded as one of the greatest psychologists in the history of literature. He specialized in the analysis of pathological states of mind that lead to insanity, murder, and suicide and in the exploration of the emotions of humiliation, self-destruction, tyrannical domination, and murderous rage. These major works are also renowned as great “novels of ideas” that treat timeless and timely issues in philosophy and politics. Psychology and philosophy are closely linked in Dostoyevsky’s portrayals of intellectuals, who “feel ideas” in the depths of their souls.
