Notes from the Underground / Fyodor Dostoevsky

Title: Notes from the Underground 
Author: Fyodor Dostoevsky
Subjects: Classic; Fiction; Political

Notes is considered by many to be one of the first existentialist novels. The first part of the story is told in monologue form, or the underground man's diary, and attacks emerging Western philosophy, especially Nikolay Chernyshevsky's What Is to Be Done? The second part of the book is called "Apropos of the Wet Snow" and describes certain events that appear to be destroying and sometimes renewing the underground man, who acts as a first person, unreliable narrator and anti-hero.
