    About "Fyodor Dostoyevsky"

      • Fyodor Dostoyevsky

        Fyodor Mikhaylovich Dostoyevsky Russian , sometimes transliterated Dostoevsky, was a Russian novelist, journalist, and short story writer whose psychological penetration into the human soul had a profound influence on the 20th century novel.Dostoyevsky was the second son of a former army doctor He was educated at home and at a private school Shortly after the death of his mother in 1837 he was sent to St Petersburg, where he entered the Army Engineering College Dostoyevsky s father died in 1839, most likely of apoplexy, but it was rud that he was murdered by his own serfs Dostoyevsky graduated as a military engineer, but resigned in 1844 to devote himself to writing His first novel, Poor Folk appeared in 1846.That year he joined a group of utopian socialists He was arrested in 1849 and sentenced to death, commuted to imprisonment in Siberia Dostoyevsky spent four years in hard labor and four years as a soldier in Semipalatinsk, a city in what it is today Kazakhstan.Dostoyevsky returned to St Petersburg in 1854 as a writer with a religious mission and published three works that derive in different ways from his Siberia experiences The House of the Dead, 1860 a fictional account of prison life, The Insulted and Injured, which reflects the author s refutation of naive Utopianism in the face of evil, and Winter Notes on Summer Impressions, his account of a trip to Western Europe.In 1857 Dostoyevsky married Maria Isaev, a 29 year old widow He resigned from the army two years later Between the years 1861 and 1863 he served as editor of the monthly periodical Time, which was later suppressed because of an article on the Polish uprising.In 1864 65 his wife and brother died and he was burdened with debts His situation was made even worse by his gambling addiction From the turmoil of the 1860s emerged Notes from the Underground, a psychological study of an outsider, which marked a major advancement in Dostoyevsky s artistic development.In 1867 Dostoyevsky married Anna Snitkin, his 22 year old stenographer They traveled abroad and returned in 1871 By the time of The Brothers Karamazov 1879 80 , Dostoyevsky was recognized in his own country as one of its great writers.


    1. Popular Culture: An Alphabetical Contempt. a) Let’s not mince words. All populist entertainment is repulsive, useless, dangerous and witheringly anti-intellectual. b) Except maybe Doctor Who. But that’s hardly Beckett, is it? c) I first became an intellectual snob in my late teens. I witnessed first hand the slow declension of burgeoning intellects through a routine of television, video games and a fear of reading books. d) How did I escape this declension? e) I learned words like declension [...]

    2. “At the inquest our doctors absolutely and emphatically rejected all idea of insanity.” I open with the closing lines, on the brink of exhaustion, not sure of my own state of sanity.Reading Dostoyevsky is a bit like spending time with close family members with a diametrically opposed worldview: I love them dearly, unconditionally, but I don’t LIKE them at all.As I am slowly working my way through Dostoyevsky’s works, starting with the whisperings of a man taking notes from the undergroun [...]

    3. “Full freedom will come only when it makes no difference whether to live or not to live. That’s the goal for everyone.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Demons [Review in limbo]I loved the Devil(s) out of the PossessedHow the Hell do I adequately review this? Once someone hits a certain genius with writing (or other forms of art), it is impossible to really grade their art. How could one grade Beethoven's great symphonies? Is Demons/Devils/the Possessed better than Crime and Punishment, The Brother [...]

    4. "Si usted supiera, Sónechka, cuánto cuesta ser escritor, es decir, ¡cargar con la suerte del escritor! Mire usted: yo estoy seguro de que si dispusiese para escribir una novela, de dos a tres años —lujo que pueden permitirse Turguéniev, Gonchárov y Tolstoi— me saldría una obra de la que se hablaría aún pasado un siglo.”Con esa carga de preocupación que en una carta Dostoievski le escribe a su sobrina, Sofía Aleksándrovna Ivánovjmir, en agosto de 1870 antes de comenzar a escrib [...]

    5. Winds of change are finally sweeping Czarist Russia , in the 1860's. Ideas good or bad , arrive too, they have been around for decades in the rest of Europe, this land is no longer isolated Socialism is the new fad for the intellectuals. The serfs have been freed by Alexander the Second, courts democratized, the death penalty seldom carried out, people can speak and write freely, up to a point. There is still Siberia for those who go over the line a little. And all the new railroads, will get y [...]

    6. Бесы = Demons = Devils, Fyodor Dostoyevsky Demons (Russian: Бесы, Bésy) is a novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, first published in the journal The Russian Messenger in 1871–2. It is considered one of the four masterworks written by Dostoyevsky after his return from Siberian exile, along with Crime and Punishment (1866), The Idiot (1869) and The Brothers Karamazov (1880). Demons is a social and political satire, a psychological drama, and large scale tragedy. Joyce Carol Oates has described [...]

    7. Ομολογώ πως έχω ολοκληρώσει το μυθιστόρημα εδώ και λίγες ημέρες, αλλά όλο ανέβαλλα να το περάσω στα read μου και να γράψω λίγα λόγια για αυτή την αναγνωστική εμπειρία. Νομίζω πως τώρα, λίγο πριν εκπνεύσει ο Απρίλης, είναι πια καιρός να το πάρω απόφαση. Δεν θα κρύψω πως με δυσκόλ [...]

    8. Dostoevsky’s novel, Demons (often falsely translated The Possessed, thereby erroneously stressing the object rather than the subject), is one of his most powerful books, a socio-political work exploring 19th century ideas (the “demons”) current in Russia at the time, specifically European liberalism and nihilism in contrast to what was most important to Dostoevsky, Russian Orthodoxy, and in this sense the author seems a forerunner of Solzhenitzyn a century later, in our own time. At times [...]

    9. My favorite extended quote from Demons: “Having devoted my energy to studying the question of the social organization of the future society which is to replace the present one, I have come to the conclusion that all creators of social systems from ancient times to our year have been dreamers, tale-tellers, fools who contradicted themselves and understood precisely nothing of natural science or of that strange animal known as man. Plato, Rousseau, Fourier, aluminum columns—this is fit perhaps [...]

    10. Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s portrayal of human nature is so idiosyncratic that he simply can’t be surpassed by anybody in this art.There always are some fashionable ideas and human beings, who can’t think indepedably, prefer to follow this fashion blindly and those people are eventually used by the others… They just become cat’s paw.“And you know it all comes from that same half-bakedness, that sentimentality. They are fascinated, not by realism, but by the emotional ideal side of socialism [...]

    11. Τα 5 αστερια ειναι πολυ λιγα για να περιγραψουν τους συγκλονιστικης δυναμης και απαραμιλλου βαθους Δαιμονισμενους του αγαπημενου μου Ντοστογιεφσκι.Εχοντας επηρεαστει απο την πρωτη πολυκροτη πολιτικη δικη που συγκλονισε την κοινωνια της Ρωσιας στα μεσα του 19ου αιωνα,πλαθ [...]

    12. Un romanzo complesso, impegnativo, anche pesante a tratti, ma Dostoevskij – come sempre – pur raccontando una storia particolare, con personaggi delineati nitidamente, riesce a parlare di qualcosa di universale, che riguarda l’umanità tutta e ogni uomo, qualcosa che riguarda me.Albert Camus, che per vent’anni ha lavorato ad una riduzione teatrale di questo romanzo, dice:“I demoni è un romanzo profetico non solo perché annuncia il nostro nichilismo, ma anche perché mette in scena an [...]

    13. I was savoring every single page , but the library deadline suddenly forced me to plough through the second half in a single day. I shall not review this book until I have thoroughly re-read it, but the pages I read attentively were truly inspiring and posed the moral dilemmas that Russian literature and especially Dostoyevsky himself is famous for.Also a technical fact that made me worship the book was the simple fact that Dostoyevsky had used the characters' full names EVERY SINGLE TIME. As a [...]

    14. all dostoevsky's usual tricks are here: his dense, documentary-like prose, succession of dialogue-heavy scenes leading up to a huge scandal, all his idiots and villains and beggers, his dark and keen psychological insight yup, it's all in demons, but, goddamn, did i find this a chore to read. the characters, to me, felt too much as stand-ins for (albeit, insightful and interesting) ideas, and the plotting was laborious and repetitive that said, it's amazing how the man laid out the breadcrumbs l [...]

    15. Wanna start with a 1984 like quote:'He suggests a system of spying. Every member of the society spies on the others, and it's his duty to inform against them. Every one belongs to all and all to every one. All are slaves and equal in their slavery. In extreme cases he advocates slander and murder, but the great thing about it is equality. To begin with, the level of education, science, and talents is lowered. A high level of education and science is only possible for great intellects, and they a [...]

    16. I wish I was eloquent enough so I could talk about Demons. I'm not. I severely lack the necessary intellect that would allow me to analyze it or even say a few things worth mentioning, the way they should be said. I will, however, state the obvious. Demons has great, limitless philosophical value. It's not a novel meant to be read as a pastime activity. It's demanding of one's full attention and capacity and still, it might be necessary for one to go back several times in order to not lose grip [...]

    17. The likeness of the events in this novel to events that have happened recently, such as the shooting of the policemen in Dallas, or the attempted coup in Turkey, is incredible. It seems to me like the people whom this novel revolves around are misguided, they are idealists, and they will stop at nothing to get what they want. What is so interesting is that the ideas that they initially had, were sometimes good ones, the problems arised when people were starting to misinterpret ideas, or changing [...]

    18. ΔαιμονισμένοιΈνα έργο επίκαιρο, ένα έργο ζωής, το διάβασμά τους αποτελεί μιά μοναδική αναγνωστική εμπειρία που κάθε φίλος της λογοτεχνίας πρέπει να την βιώσει .Ο Πιότρ Στεπάνοβιτς και ο Νικολάι Σταβρόγκιν οι απόλυτες μυθιστορηματικές φιγούρες.

    19. The quality and mastery of Dostoevsky’s vision, and his use of character and plot and pacing, are all on display in this marvelous work. It’s true that perhaps it doesn’t hold together as strongly as some of his other works; but it’s not true that this is a poor example of his work. In some ways, it exceeds all of them, particularly through voice and narrative instability. There perhaps is some reticence to include it amongst the ‘greats’ due to politics and religion, both then and n [...]

    20. Uzun zamandır herhangi bir dünya klasiği okumamıştım. Bu anlamda "ecinniler" beni kendime getirdi. Dostoyevski'nin, döneminde işlenen politik bir cinayetten etkilenmesi üzerine yazdığı, siyasi ve döneme damgasını vurmuş nihilizm dalgası hakkında kaygılarını karakterlerine işlemiş, -Camus'nun deyimiyle- bir kehanet kitabı. Yazarın "budala" isimli eseriyle klasik okumalarıma devam etmek için sabırsızlanıyorum.Ek Okuma: mutlaktoz.wordpress/2011/

    22. Acest roman s-ar fi putut la fel de lesne numi "La originile SOCIALISMULUI". Conceptul nu trebuie interpretat însă în sens ideologic (originile sale ar putea fi dibuite chiar în Grecia antică: Pericle, de pildă, chiar de nu își sistematizează crezul, transpune, prin politicile sale, premisele fundamentale ale socialismului), ci strict istoric. Nici dracu' nu știe când a fost înființată prima Internațională. Datele istorice nu interesează, deoarece la început aceasta s-a confund [...]

    23. داستایِفسکی در این رمان هم پرسشی ابدی را مطرح کرده که هنوز دغدغه‌ انگیز است و به شکل‌های مختلف در زندگی شخصی و اجتماعی ما رخ می‌ نمایاند. پرسش این است: آیا به نام هدفی متعالی می‌ توان دست به جنایت زد؟ یا به بیانی کلیشه‌ ای و نازل‌ تر: آیا هدف وسیله را توجیه می‌ کند؟داستایِفسک [...]

    24. I read many of Dostoyevsky's novels in Arabic translations many years ago, although they are poor translations from French and English copies, i considered Dostoyevsky as one of my top 5 novelists. The Possessed is my first English translation i read.The greatest point of Dostoyevsky's art of novel is his characters, the most marginal character is will build and presented, there's no an ordinary shallow character. Sometimes Dostoyevsky forget one character then let it play an important role like [...]

    25. What Dostoyevsky diagnosed in this novel was the tendency to think of ideas as being somehow more real than actual human beings. The 19th Century Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote about characters who justified murder in the name of their ideological beliefs. For this reason, John Gray argues, he's remained relevant ever since, through the rise of the totalitarian states of the 20th Century, to the "war against terror".Dostoyevsky suggests that the result of abandoning morality for the s [...]

    26. Come si può commentare un libro di una complessità tale come I demòni? La critica letteraria dell’ultimo secolo ha scritto una mole di opere sulla figura del grande scrittore e sui suoi scritti. In qualità di semplice lettrice, mi limito a parlare dei momenti più alti, nella loro tragicità, del libro, momenti che raffigurano, ai miei occhi, la grandezza e il genio di Dostoevskij. Meriterebbe di essere letto solo per queste pagine. Essi sono rappresentati dalle due lettere scritte da Niko [...]

    28. This is one of the few novels by Dostoyevsky that I haven't read, and I think it's not only his most political but also his most prescient in terms of today's world—particularly the individual faced with corrupt systems, the movement toward anarchy and rebellion, and the webs of power that bind all individuals to their oppressive societies no matter how hard they strive to be free of these restrictions.I think Demons should be read after some of Dostoyevsky's more intricately plotted and deepe [...]
