Dostoyevsky and the Process of Literary Creation

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, May 11, 1989 - Literary Criticism - 553 pages
Jacques Catteau's much-acclaimed book on Dostoyevsky, which has already received three literary prizes (and one medical) in France, appears here in English for the first time. It is an original and detailed attempt to re-examine Dostoyevsky the artist, tracing the creative process from its beginnings in the notebooks to its expression in the novels, and at the same time analysing the structures of time and space, the role of colour, and other important features of the texts.
