"My intention is to portray a truly beautiful soul" Dostoevsky.

From his reslove emerged the character of prince myshkin, the saint-like man whose rare goodness evokes as much mistrust as love in a society more concerned with wealth, power and sexual conquest than the ideals of christianity. Myshikins disintegration, reinforced by his daily increasing awareness of human misery is final proof of the inability of any man to bear the burden of moral perfection in an imprefect world.
