About Book

The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for
the better part of a century. The series was founded in 1917 by the publishers
Boni and Liveright and eight years later acquired by Bennett Cerf and Donald
Klopfer. It provided the foundation for their next publishing venture, Random
House. The Modern Library has been a staple of the American book trade,
providing readers with affordable hardbound editions of important works of
literature and thought. For the Modern Library’s seventy-fifth anniversary,
Random House redesigned the series, restoring as its emblem the running
torch-bearer created by Lucian Bernhard in 1925 and refurbishing jackets,
bindings, and type, as well as inaugurating a new program of selecting titles.
The Modern Library continues to provide the world’s best books, at the best

Ernest J. Simmons

The twenty-four-year-old Dostoevsky, his head in a whirl, had just left the
house of the famous critic, Vissarion Belinsky, a man whose favorable
opinion any young author would have prized in the Russia of those days. He
had been listening to Belinsky’s praise of the manuscript of his first story,
Poor Folk. “This is the truth of art!” the enraptured critic had exclaimed as he
concluded his comments on the tale. “This is the artist’s service to truth! To
you, as an artist, truth is revealed and declared; it came to you as a gift.
Treasure, then, your gift, be faithful to it, and you will become a great writer.”
The youthful Dostoevsky stopped at the corner of the critic’s house, looked at
the sky, at the bright day, and at the passers-by. With Belinsky’s words still
running through his head, he asked himself in a state of timid ecstasy: “Am I
in truth so great? … Oh, I shall prove worthy of this praise.” Recalling the
moment more than thirty years later, he wrote: “Thereafter I never could
forget it. This was the most delightful minute in my whole life.
