Product Overview

"Drawing on contemporary criticism, Dostoevsky''s own prison experience, and his later masterpiece novels, this provocative book inquires into the great Russian writer''s ''sense of the demos''--in equal parts mystical, traumatic, and inspirational. A fascinating narrative."--Caryl Emerson, Princeton University

"This elegant and deeply argued book offers a major revision of the standard narrative of Dostoevsky''s postexile emergence as a convert to Orthodoxy and conservative nationalism. Nancy Ruttenburg presents a provocative and persuasive reading of Dostoevsky''s first novel, "Notes from the House of the Dead," situating it as the wellspring of his particular form of utopian Russian populism."--Dale E. Peterson, Amherst College
