Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Elaborate, please.  

I think my favorite characters are Myshkin and Nikolai Stavrogin.  I relate most to Nastasia Fillipovna and Ivan.  Sometimes, instead of explaining my "religious" views, I find it easier to just refer people to Ivan's monologue in the chapter, "Rebellion."

It seems Myshkin and Ivan "represent" incompatible ideas.  But in practice, they are somewhat similar, interestingly...
