Description - Dostoevsky by Richard Freeborn

This volume forms part of the "Life and Times" series of compact and accessible biographies which cover key political, literary and musical figures. This title is about the life and work of Russian novelist Fyodor M. Dostoevsky (1821-81), known as the author of some of the great Russian novels of the 19th century, such as "Crime and Punishment" and "The Brothers Karamazov". Rivalled only by Tolstoy in terms of achievement and influence, Dostoevsky's greatness is his command of a multitude of human factors, from the most saintly to the most pathological, from the deepest emotional states to the most perversely criminal and from the greatest sense of evil to the most sublime belief in a Christian God.
