The Dostoevsky Archive: Firsthand Accounts of the Novelist from Contemporaries' Memoirs and Rare Periodicals, Most Translated Into English for the First Time, with a Detailed Lifetime Chronology and Annotated Bibliography
McFarland & Company, Jan 1, 1997 - Biography & Autobiography - 370 pages
Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (1821-1881), one of the greatest novelists of the 19th century, continues to be one of the writers most focussed upon in academia, both in Russia and throughout the world. As a consequence, interest in new primary biographical data is still rising. With the recent opening of numerous archives in the former Soviet Union, much new material has come to light that has not yet been incorporated in published works or standard curricula. The Doestoevsky Archive comprehensively documents the entire life of the Russian novelist, using contemporary Russian source documents, the author's own letters and notes and those of his family, and the memoirs of his contemporaries. This is a monumental reference work for builders of Doestoevsky biography. Includes a detailed chronology, an annotated bibliography, and brief biographies of important contemporaries. Fully indexed.
