Dostoevsky's quest for form : a study of his philosophy of art by Robert Louis Jackson( Book )

22 editions published between 1966 and 1978 in English and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of this book is to bring the reader, as vividly and succinctly as possible, the central body of Dostoevsky's aesthetic thought and to reveal its centrality to his world outlook ... --his pronouncements on beauty, the nature of artistic representation of reality, the function of literature, and similar matters--in order to determine and then demonstrate the coherence of this thought."--Preface
The art of Dostoevsky : deliriums and nocturnes by Robert Louis Jackson( Book )

11 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Louis Jackson considers Dostoevsky's powerful but much neglected Notes from the House of the Dead the seminal work of his post-Siberian period and critical to an interpretation of his art from 1861-1881. He projects this work as an artistic embodiment of a Christian poetics of insight and transfiguration. Breaking new ground, he explores the interrelated social, moral, aesthetic, psychological, and philosophical problems that absorbed Dostoevsky in his prison masterpiece and shows how these same motifs unite and shape many of his subsequent novels and short stories."--Jacket

Close encounters : essays on Russian literature by Robert Louis Jackson( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Close Encounters: Essays on Russian Literature combines discussions of ethical, esthetic, and philosophical interest raised by Pushkin, Gogol, Turgenev, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, and Gorky, with close analyses of their texts. This book focuses on four thematic configurations: first ("Chance and Fate"), issues of freedom and responsibility, the necessity of free individual expression and yet the limits of will, or self-will; second ("Two Kinds of Beauty"), the unity of moral, esthetic, and spiritual categories, and the quest for the ideal; third ("Critical Perspectives"), examples of the type of commentary that approaches art with a unified ethical and spiritual perspective (Dostoevsky, Gorky, V.I. Ivanov, and the partially dissenting Bakhtin); and fourth ("Poems of Parting"), three poems (works by Tyutchev, Severyanin, and Pushkin) involving parting, loss, and recovery."--Publisher's website
