The Russian Soul
A new anthology of Dostoevsky’s remarkable work ‘A Writer’s Diary’. A voluminous and variegated miscellany in which the celebrated author spoke to his readers about issues concerning Russia, it is a work as eerily prescient of global preoccupations in the twenty-first century as it is frequently overlooked. Brilliantly introduced by Rosamund Bartlett, distinguished scholar and writer, The Diary stands revealed as the work of a writer-activist and blogger avant la lettre, who sought to transform Russian society and humankind itself.
Dostoevsky’s Writer’s Diary was also his creative laboratory, and proves to be a source of fundamental importance in understanding the complex mind behind his artistic works.
