Fyodor Dostoyevsky
The Double
A Petersburg Poem
Translated by Constance Garnett

Creation date: 1845—1846

The Double centers on a government clerk who goes mad. It deals with the internal psychological struggle of its main character, Yakov Petrovich Golyadkin, who repeatedly encounters someone who is his exact double in appearance but confident, aggressive, and extroverted, characteristics that are the polar opposites to those of the toadying "pushover" protagonist.
