At its heart, The Insulted and the Injured is a story of human tragedy and suffering, but it is also a love story. Narrated by a fictitious young author, Vanya, this book tells the story of Natasha and her lover, Alyosha, who also happens to be the son of the cruel Prince Valkovsky.
Unfortunately, Prince Valkovsky has plans for Alyosha's future and those plans don't include Natasha. The prince sets out to destroy his son's relationship so that he can see him safely married to the wealthy heiress, Katya. Will love endure or will the evil prince get his way?
The Insulted and Injured was released in 1861 and is Fyodor Dostoevsky's first major novel after his Siberian exile. Influenced by authors such as Charles Dickens and Edgar Allan Poe, Dostoevsky would become one of the most widely read Russian authors of the 19th century.
