In this almost documentary account of his own experience of penal servitude in Siberia, renowned Russian writer Dostoevsky describes the physical and mental suffering of the convicts in relentless detail. Written several years after his release, with a strikingly uncharacteristic detachment, MEMOIRS FROM HOUSE OF THE DEAD ranks among Dostoevsky's greatest masterpieces.

From the Back Cover:

In this almost documentary account of his own experience of penal servitude in Siberia, Dostoevsky describes the physical and mental suffering of the convicts, the squalor, the degradation, in relentless detail - even down to the intricate procedure whereby the men strip for the bath without removing their ten-pound leg-fetters. The steam-bath scene itself, where the livid branded bodies seem to burn in the fires of Hell, is an extraordinary tour de force, compared by Trugenev to passages from Dante's 'Inferno.'

About the Author:

Fedor Dostoevsky is considered one of the greatest Russian writers, whose works have had a profound and lasting effect on twentieth-century fiction.
