Read The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoevsky. Returning to Russia from a Swiss sanatorium, the saintly Prince Myshkin finds himself a stranger in a society obsessed with wealth, power and sexual conquest. Extortion and scandal escalate to murder, as Dostoevsky's "positively beautiful man" clashes with the emptiness of a society that cannot accommodate his innocence and moral idealism.
