Synopsis

Dostoevsky was one of the greatest authors of the nineteenth century. His masterpieces Crime and Punishment, The Idiot and The Brothers Karamazov are held in high regard by literary critics. This fifth and final volume of Joseph Frank's justly celebrated biography renders with a rare intelligence and grace the last decade of the writer's life, a time that won him the universal approval toward which he always aspired. While describing the writer's idiosyncratic relationship to the Russian State, Frank also details Dostoevsky's continuing rivalries with Turgenev and Tolstoy. The writer's death in St Petersburg in January 1881 concludes this unparalleled literary biography, one truly worthy of Dostoevsky's genius and of the remarkable time and place in which he lived.
