In the noval Demons (by Dostoyevsky), there was a character, named Pyotr Stepanovich Verkhovensky, who claimed that he was connected to the international.

Did Dostoyevsky mention anywhere in the book that he really was?

  • I haven't read the book, so apologies if this is clarified in it, but: that is a rather odd use of "international", as a noun. What does it mean? Is "the international" some group within the book?
