A separate book edition was published in 1873. The novel Demons was introduced to the English reader in 1913 by the indefatigable Constance Garnett, the woman who single-handedly created the ‘Russian craze’ through her translations of the collected works of Dostoyevsky, Chekhov, Gogol, Tolstoy and Turgenev. Garnett dubbed the novel The Possessed, a title which held sway for decades, even influencing translations into other languages, for example, the stage adaptation Les Possédés (1959) by Albert Camus.

Siberia taught Dostoyevsky much that would be fictionalized in Demons, including criminal speech, the criminal mind and the ways of officialdom. He also experienced personally the complexities of passion his stories and novels of the 1840s had already explored; he wooed a close friend’s wife, Marya Dmitriyevna Isayeva, and married her after she became a widow burdened with a troubled family and the hectic hysteria of advanced tuberculosis. In 1859, the regime of the new tsar, Alexander II, allowed the Dostoyevskys to leave Siberia for Tver, a hundred miles north of Moscow; this provincial capital on the upper Volga River, and its geography, architecture and society, provided much of the setting for Demons.
