"Dostoevsky's final years at last won him the universal approval toward which he had always aspired. While describing his idiosyncratic relationship to the Russian state, Frank also details Dostoevsky's continuing rivalries with Turgenev and Tolstoy. Dostoevsky's appearance at the Pushkin Festival in June 1880, which preceded his death by one year, marked the apotheosis of his career - and of his life as a spokesman for the Russian spirit. There he delivered his famous speech on Pushkin before an audience stirred to a feverish emotional pitch: "Ours is universality attained not by the sword, but by the force of brotherhood and of our brotherly striving toward the reunification of mankind." This is the Dostoevsky who has entered the patrimony of world literature, though he was not always capable of living up to such exalted ideals." "The writer's death in St. Petersburg in January of 1881 concludes the literary biography - one truly worthy of Dostoevsky's genius and of the remarkable time and place in which he lived."--Jacket

"This volume, the third of five in Joseph Frank's widely acclaimed biography of Dostoevsky, begins with the writer's return to St. Petersburg, after a ten-year Siberian exile. Having met with sudden fame as the highly praised young author of Poor Folk in 1845, Dostoevsky was abruptly forgotten after his arrest and exile for political conspiracy. He came back to the capital determined to reestablish his literary reputation. Now as the editor of and writer for two literary journals that joined in the cultural and social ferment of Russia in the early 1860s, Dostoevsky was to discover the themes that would underlie his mature masterpieces. Frank describes the intricate process of the novelist's self-definition, in interaction with all the forces of the "stir of liberation" under Alexander II."--Cover

Between religion and rationality : essays in Russian literature and culture by Joseph Frank( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, acclaimed Dostoevsky biographer Joseph Frank explores some of the most important aspects of nineteenth and twentieth century Russian culture, literature, and history. Delving into the distinctions of the Russian novel as well as the conflicts between the religious peasant world and the educated Russian elite, Between Religion and Rationality displays the cogent reflections of one of the most distinguished and versatile critics in the field. Frank's essays provide a discriminating look at four of Dostoevsky's most famous novels, discuss the debate between J.M. Coetzee and Mario Vargas Llosa on the issue of Dostoevsky and evil, and confront Dostoevsky's anti-Semitism. The collection also examines such topics as Orlando Figes' sweeping survey of the history of Russian culture, the life of Pushkin, and Oblomov's influence on Samuel Beckett. Investigating the omnipresent religious theme that runs throughout Russian culture, even in the antireligious Chekhov, Frank argues that no other major European literature was as much preoccupied as the Russian with the tensions between religion and rationality. Between Religion and Rationality highlights this unique quality of Russian literature and culture, offering insights for general readers and experts alike

The house of the dead ; and, Poor folk by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Arrested in 1849 for belonging to a secret group of radical utopians, Fyodor Dostoevsky was sentenced to four years in a Siberian labor camp--a terrible mental, spiritual, and physical ordeal that inspired him to write The House of the Dead. Told from the point of view of a fictitious narrator--a convict serving a ten year sentence for murdering his wife--The House of the Dead describes in vivid detail the horrors that Dostoevsky himself witnessed while in prison: the brutality of the guards who relished cruelty for its own sake; the evil of criminals who enjoy murdering children; and the existence of decent souls amid filth and degradation. Also included in this volume is Dostoevsky's first published work, Poor Folk, a novel written in the form of letters that brought Dostoevsky immediate critical and public recognition."--Cover

Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences&#151;biographical, historical, and literary&#151;to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. The most famous&#151;and perhaps greatest&#151;novel of all time, Tolstoy's War and Peace tells the story of five families struggling for survival during Napoleon's invasion of Russia. Among its many unforgettable characters is Prince Andrey Bolkonsky, a proud, dashing man who, despising the artifice of high society, joins the army to achieve glory. Badly wounded at Austerlitz, he begins to discover the emptiness of everything to which he has devoted himself. His death scene is considered one of the greatest passages in Russian literature. The novel's other hero, the bumbling Pierre Bezukhov, tries to find meaning in life through a series of philosophical systems that promise to resolve all questions. He at last discovers the Tolstoyan truth that wisdom is to be found not in systems but in the ordinary processes of daily life, especially in his marriage to the novel's most memorable heroine, Natasha. Both an intimate study of individual passions and an epic history of Russia and its people, War and Peace is nothing more or less than a complete portrait of human existence. <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt>Joseph Frank is Professor Emeritus of Comparative Literature at Princeton University and Professor Emeritus of Comparative Literature and Slavic Languages and Literature at Stanford University. He is the author of a five-volume study of Dostoevsky's life and work
