This third volume begins with the writer's return to St Petersburg, after a ten-year exile. Dostoevsky came back to the capital determined to re-establish his literary reputation to be accepted as a writer of the first rank. Spiritually transformed, he had also gained in physical vigour and self-assurance, despite the debilitating hardships of prison and army life. In this lucid study of five years, a period previously passed over rapidly, Professor Frank describes the intricate process of the novelist's self definition and the reshaping of his social-political outlook, in interaction with all the forces of the 'stir of liberation' under Alexander II.

This is the third in a projected five-volume literary biography of Dostoevsky. The first two volumes ( LJ 9/1/76; 11/15/83) have been widely acclaimed; the present volume, which covers Dostoevsky's return to Petersburg and the resumption of his literary activities following his exile in Siberia, is no less an achievement. It is to Frank's credit that he has analyzed so carefully these formative years, usually neglected by scholars, and produced this gracefully written volume of intellectual history. It is a work of vast erudition and of absorbing interest that can hardly be recommended too highly. Essential for all major collections. Joyce S. Toomre, Russian Research Ctr., Harvard Univ.
