And, besides, who isn’t suffering from aberration, nowadays?
So, making progress through the Brothers K, thought I would keep you all up to date with where I am. There's some fantastic passages with Madame Hohlakov; I'm reading one right now where she's talking with Aloysha about Mitya's upcoming trial. What's impressive is that back in Dostoyevsky's day they were already dealing with the whole notion of an insanity defense. Interesting. Click here to see the part that I'm reading now. (You have to go a few pages in to get to the part about the aberration).
