Dostoevsky by Joseph Frank ( Book )
28 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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 ( )
7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,206 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
