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?<br /><br />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 nineteenth century.<br />
