Short story: “Stavrogin’s Confession”

by look i have opinions

“Stavrogin’s Confession,” a series of chapters originally omitted from the novel Devils due to censors, by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Translated by S. S. Koteliansky and Virginia Woolf (SWF / PDF), Michael R. Katz, and probably many others

About 65 pages in the Koteliansky/Woolf translation

I cannot help but read this section as a short story in itself, although I don’t know whether Dostoyevsky ever intended it to stand alone. It is a continuous and terrible dream.
