1st Edition

E.H. Carr
October 18, 2016

The bare events of Dostoevsky’s life – his father murdered by peasants, his own ordeal before a firing squad, then exile in Siberia, his epilepsy, gambling, poverty and debts – go far to account for his strange intensity of vision. This biography, first published in 1931, traces his wayward...

The Political and Social Thought of F.M. Dostoevsky

The Political and Social Thought of F.M. Dostoevsky

1st Edition

Stephen Kirby Carter
October 18, 2016

This study concentrates on The Devils, but also places this novel in the total context of Dostoevsky’s work. Also considered is the life and work of T.N. Granovsky, who is satirised along with Turgenev in the novel, and thus offers a useful basis on which to delineate the contours of Dostoevsky’s...

Tolstoy's 'What is Art?'

Tolstoy's 'What is Art?'

1st Edition

Terry Diffey
October 18, 2016

With its demand that works of art be judged according to the their morally didactic content, Tolstoy’s reviled aesthetics has seemed to exclude from the canon far too many works widely accepted as masterpieces, including Shakespeare and Beethoven. This book, first published in 1985, argues that...

Tolstoy

1st Edition

Ernest Joseph Simmons
October 18, 2016

Tolstoy’s fame as one of the world’s greatest novelists has never been in doubt, but the importance of his views on the social, moral and religious issues of his time is not so widely recognised. This study, first published in 1973, presents an introduction to the historical and cultural background...

Tolstoy: The Comprehensive Vision

Tolstoy: The Comprehensive Vision

1st Edition

E. B. Greenwood
October 18, 2016

Tolstoy was as much a philosopher as a novelist.

It was in his personal diaries that Tolstoy first attempted a ‘literary psychology’ to reveal...
