Synopsis

This 1983 volume comprises essays written by British and American scholars to mark the centenary of Dostoyevsky's death in 1881. In many respects it is a companion volume to New Essays on Tolstoy published by Cambridge University Press in 1978. The book is divided into two sections. The first part considers specific works; there are essays on Dostoyevsky's early work, Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, The Devils, and The Brothers Karamazov. The second part ranges more widely over aspects of the great novelist's work and includes essays on Dostoyevsky's religious thought, on Dostoyevsky as philosopher, and on formalist and structuralist approaches to Dostoyevsky's work. The volume concludes with a bibliographical survey of British writing on Dostoyevsky. The collection will be of value to anyone with an interest in Russian literature whether in the original language or in translation.
