Dostoevsky: Language, Faith, and Fiction

Priekinis viršelis
Baylor University Press, 2011 - 290 psl.
In this highly acclaimed work, now available for the first time in paperback, Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams investigates the four major novels of one of literature's most complex, and most complexly misunderstood, authors: Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, Devils, and The Brothers Karamozov. Displaying an impressive grasp of the literary, historical, psychological, and theological frameworks underpinning Dostoevsky's text, Williams explores the intricacies of his speech, fiction, metaphor, and iconography. To understand Dostoevsky as a writer of fiction, Williams convincingly argues, one must also understand his religious commitments. Published in cloth in 2008, Rowan Williams' Dostoevsky is a rich and masterful guide--one that greatly enhances any reading of the great writers' work.
