About-

This novel is a story of the transformative power of love, of how Nick Mitya, who was nourished by a patriarchal, religiously bigoted, sexually chauvinist, materialist, and hypocritical culture, is transformed into a compassionate, caring, tolerant, and honest human being. This story is a vivid depiction of the challenges, struggles, and obstacles that stand in the way of Nick’s endeavor to liberate himself from the oppressive traditions, customs, beliefs, and values of that culture and how the patient, tolerant, confident, healing fire of love illuminated Nick’s mind with the light of truth, enlivened his heart with the warmth of humanity, and armed his will with the courage to be himself. This same love is also a fertile soil for the growth of a tender, yet passionate, romantic love between a German scholar, Johannes Mitya, and a Syrian political science graduate, Tina Sarkisian. The growth of this love adds luster and nobility to love as a transformative power and as an essential condition of human happiness.
