Item description for Dostoevsky (Life&Times) by Richard Freeborn...
Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-81), author of Crime and Punishment, The Idiot and The Brothers Karamazov, is rivaled only by Leo Tolstoy in terms of achievement and influence. This study is a guide to his life as a writer and his literary legacy. Dostoevsky's greatness lies in his searing insight into the human psyche in all its forms, from the most saintly to the most pathological. He combines the greatest sense of evil with the most sublime belief in a Christian God.
