First published in 1846, Fyodor Dostoyevsky's novella "The Double" is a classic doppelganger and the second major work published by the author. It is the story of Yakov Petrovich Golyadkin, a government clerk who believes that a fellow clerk has taken over his identity and is determined to bring about his ruin. Considered the most Gogolesque of Dostoyevsky's works, the novella brilliantly depicts Golyadkin's descent into madness in a way that is hauntingly poetic. "The Double" illustrates Dostoyevsky's uncanny ability at capturing the complexity of human emotion especially the darker side of the human psyche."
