9780810114739: Dostoevsky's Occasional Writings

This classic collection of articles, sketches, and letters spans thirty-three years in Fyodor Dostoevsky's writing career: from 1847, just after the publication of his first novel, until 1880, a year before his death. The writings show the scope of his artistic development and the changes that occurred as a result of such cataclysmic events as his arrest and trial for treason, and his subsequent imprisonment and exile in Siberia.

About the Author:

One of the most powerful and significant authors in all modern fiction, Fyodor Dostoevsky was the son of a harsh and domineering army surgeon who was murdered by his own serfs (slaves), an event that was extremely important in shaping Dostoevsky's view of social and economic issues. He studied to be an engineer and began work as a draftsman. However, his first novel, Poor Folk (1846), was so well received that he abandoned engineering for writing. In 1849, Dostoevsky was arrested for being a part of a revolutionary group that owned an illegal printing press. He was sentenced to be executed, but the sentence was changed at the last minute, and he was sent to a prison camp in Siberia instead. By the time he was released in 1854, he had become a devout believer in both Christianity and Russia - although not in its ruler, the Czar. During the 1860's, Dostoevsky's personal life was in constant turmoil as the result of financial problems, a gambling addiction, and the deaths of his wife and brother. His second marriage in 1887 provided him with a stable home life and personal contentment, and during the years that followed he produced his great novels: Crime and Punishment (1886), the story of Rodion Raskolnikov, who kills two old women in the belief that he is beyond the bounds of good and evil; The Idiot (1868), the story of an epileptic who tragically affects the lives of those around him; The Possessed (1872), the story of the effect of revolutionary thought on the members of one Russian community; A Raw Youth (1875), which focuses on the disintegration and decay of family relationships and life; and The Brothers Karamazov (1880), which centers on the murder of Fyodor Karamazov and the effect the murder has on each of his four sons. These works have placed Dostoevsky in the front rank of the world's great novelists. Dostoevsky was an innovator, bringing new depth and meaning to the psychological novel and combining realism and philosophical speculation in his complex studies of the human condition.

David Magarshack's translations include works by Dostoevsky, Turgenev, Chekhov, Gorky, and Pushkin. He has also written biographies of Dostoevsky and Gogol.

Descripción Northwestern Univ Press July 1997, 1997. Paper Back. Estado de conservación: New. Dostoevsky's occasional writings compile thirty-three years of newspaper and journal articles, sketches and correspondence collected from 1847-1880, shortly after the success of his first novel until a year before his death. While these writings suffer from (as Dostoevsky himself confessed) the same diffuseness of style that characterizes his novels, the ideas Dostoevsky expresses in them give an important view into the development and genius of one of the greatest writers of all time (it's just true). Herein resides four articles from The Petersburg News, five articles from Dostoevsky's own Time (a literary/political/cultural journal), several sketches, four ''Manifestoes,'' nine of his personal letters, and ''The Triton'' -- an uncharacteristically succinct and good-humoured satire jibing the man who suspects a police spy in everyone he meets. Dostoevsky's slavophilic leanings are apparent throughout and occasionally hilarious in their dramatic effect -- ''To Europe, Russia is one of the riddles of the Sphinx. The perpetuum mobile or the elixir of life will be discovered sooner than Western Europe will comprehend the Russian truth, the Russian spirit, character or turn of mind. In this respect even the moon has been explored more thoroughly than Russia.'' The letters include a request to a correspondent for any observances he might offer concerning children (Dostoevsky was then preparing to write ) and an apology to an unsuccessful writer.
