That what Bakhtin said back in the turn of the century that these are "possessed men, tormented, devoured by an idea, by an omnipotent conception of reality, men who believe themselves to be in possession of the truth, but each one of whom has built his own truth in an abhorrent, destructive and catastrophic way. .. I just want to know before I slog through this depressing Russian book.
