A Raw Youth (Russian: Podrostok), also published as The Adolescent or An Accidental Family, is a novel by Russian writer Fyodor Dostoevsky (Dostoyevsky), first published in monthly installments in 1875 in The Fatherland Notes. The novel chronicles the life of 19-year-old intellectual, Arkady Dolgoruky, illegitimate child of the controversial and womanizing landowner Versilov. A focus of the novel is the recurring conflict between father and son, particularly in ideology, which represents the battles between the conventional "old" way of thinking in the 1840s and the new nihilistic point of view of the youth of 1860s Russia.
Whereas the young of Arkady's time embraced a very negative opinion of Russian culture in contrast to Western or European culture.
