Summary
After fifteen years of treatment for epilepsy in a Swiss institution, Prince Mishkin returns to St. Petersburg to find a jaded mid-19th century social world. At first, the kindly, almost childlike prince is taken for an idiot. But the two most beautiful women in town are soon competing for his affections in a duel that grows increasingly dangerous
