'In this new translation one finally gets the musical whole of Dostoevsky's original' New York Times Book Review
Born in Moscow in 1821, Fyodor Mikhaylovich Dostoevsky is regarded as one of the greatest writers who ever lived. Literary modernism and various schools of psychology and theology have been deeply changed by his ideas. He died in 1881 in St Petersburg, Russia.
Dostoevsky makes Martin Amis seem as if he was writing 130 years
ago and that Dostoevsky is writing now. Read all of Dostoevsky.
These books are for now and they matter, because it's up to us to
call a halt to our TV producers, politicians, gutless artists,
poets and writers: these "teenagers of all ages" who are propelling
us towards a consumerist hell of disposability over quality --
Donne, Herbert, Shakespeare, Jane Austen, George Eliot, Dostoevsky, Henry James - these are the great psychologists - far greater than Freud or Klein or Jung -- Sally Vickers
