"I am a sick man ... I am a spiteful man." So begins Fyodor Dostoevsky's short novel, Notes from Underground. Published in 1864, the novel is considered by many critics to be the forerunner of existentialist thought. Presented as the rantings of a bitter, isolated narrator -- referred to by many readers as Underground Man -- who is a retired civil servant living in St. Petersburg, the novel explores the ideas of alienation, oppression, and marginalization.
