A wall is not a challenge to us men and women who think and therefore don’t do anything, said the narrator in (Russian psychologist-writer) Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s 1864 Notes from Underground– which is a work considered to be one of the first novels of an entirely existential nature in that the unreliable narrator blatantly divulges and insinuates himself into asking some of the deeper and more pressing questions concerning all humankind, drawing from a philosophic tradition that- by the second half of the nineteenth century- had already given birth to some of the world’s greatest literary and spiritual studies on the transitory and mysterious nature of the Self, including such texts as St. Augustine’s Confessions, Shakespeare’s Hamlet and Voltaire’s Candide. Find your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.
