The content of the book is not an attempt to summarize or condense Dostoyevsky's masterpiece. Such a thing would, after all, be impossible - but also useless: how is it possible to condense the form that beauty radiates? Or how can you abbreviate a text so dense and well-crafted, in which the most seemingly insignificant word "works", and its removal is unthinkable? And what is the use if you summarize a colossal composition that strives to tell the story of the tragic epic of human freedom, the dramatic struggle of God with the devil in the threshing floor of the human heart? One and only purpose this book aspires to serve: to help the reader better follow the development of the action of the novel and, to a lesser extent, the thought of the author. I especially think that it can be useful to the one who has just finished the first reading of the novel and feels somewhat lost from his wanderings in the labyrinthine paths of his heroes: it will help him see more clearly the fabric of the work and make the next one ( and every future) reading more efficient.
