EN SAVOIR PLUS Résumé

Fyodor Dostoyevsky is credited with writing some of the greatest novels of all time; a compatriot of Tolstoy and a contemporary of Dickens, his struggle for recognition was a long and difficult journey. He suffered from severe epilepsy and an addiction to gambling, and in 1849 was only moments away from execution before he received a reprieve and was instead imprisoned in Siberia. In his writing, he offended and delighted in equal measure, recounting his own experience of prison with dark humor and wit in The House of the Dead and never losing his fascination with real-life crime. His novels ranged from the gritty social realism of Crime and Punishment to the fantastical tale of The Double, as well as the world-renowned The Brothers Karamazov. From revolutionary to reactionary, enemy of the state to tutor of the Tsar’s children, Dostoyevsky's story is one of turbulent change and contradiction. This biography explores his life and work, recounting his personal struggles with deadlines, debt, marriage, and memories, and revisiting and revitalizing his outstanding contribution to literature and how his writing is reflected and translated in the media today.
