Garnett was good enough for all the writers and scholars that established Dostoevskys reputation in the West you spoiled niggers

Throw it in the trash and read Schopenhauer

Take your time. It’s a “philosophical”novel, so at times it will feel like the plot will stall for chapters on end while Raskolnikov ponders. The plot is almost secondary in this novel. When you feel like it gets heavy (it’s not a difficult novel but it drags at parts) but go for a walk tbqh

It’s literally just another book, you dumb nigger. What else do you want from me, there’s nothing “deep” about it. I read it when I was 14 for English class and I “got” it, idk what the faggot of OP wants really other than signaling his pseud-dom

Mcduff is excellent

>> No.12283499

>>12282784
the argument is that Garnett is great because she introduced Dosto to the West, but since then there have been better translations. The reason most scholars (of past) have relied on her translations is because they were the only ones available for a long time (the alternatives early on did not have a good rep)
this is no longer the case

Wtf I actually did exactly this
