The Double: A Petersburg Poem is a novel written by Fyodor Dostoevsky and originally published in 1846. It is the second novel by the Russian writer.
Yakov Petrovich Goliadkin is an apparently normal and ordinary man. He works as a civil servant, which allows him to live comfortably and even has a servant named Petrushka.
However, from the very beginning of the novel we learn that he has a strange personality and great difficulty in relating to other people. He feels pressured and self-conscious about those above him in the hierarchy.
His life will change completely when his "double" appears, with a personality totally opposite to Goliadkin's, which earns him the admiration of his colleagues and bosses. This psychological disorder will worsen and will lead Goliadkin to an extreme situation...
This edition of the book The Double is based on the translation by Constance Garnett.
"It was a little before eight o’clock in the morning when Yakov Petrovitch Golyadkin, a titular councillor, woke up from a long sleep. He yawned, stretched, and at last opened his eyes completely."
