Dostoevsky's Devils A Critical Companion by W. J. Leatherbarrow


Dostoevsky's Devils A Critical Companion by W. J. Leatherbarrow

The most openly political of Dostoevsky's four major novels, The Devils has left literary scholars intrigued with its difficult narrative structure which veers back and forth between first and third person, and fascinated by the political overtones and social commentary it includes. For these reasons, The Devils often anchors courses on Dostoevsky's works. This critical companion contains essays that shed light on both the tricky literary structure of the novel as well as its social and political components.
