... unparalleled debauchery, when man turns into a filthy coward, cruel, vicious reptile. That's what we need! And what's more,. a little fresh blood that we may grow accustomed to it... Dostoyevsky's "The Devils," part II, Chapter VIII. In my novel "The Devils" I attempted to depict the complex and heterogenous motive which may prompt even the purest of heart and the most naive people to take part in an absolutely monstrous crime. -- Dostoyevsky's The Diary of a Writer
