About the Author:

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dosto´evski (as Fedor or Theodore in French) is a Russian writer, born in Moscow on Nov. 11 (October 30) in 1821 and died in St. Petersburg on February 9 (January 28) 1881. It is generally considered one of the greatest Russian novelists, and has influenced many writers and philosophers. After a difficult childhood, he attended a school for officers and binds with the Russian progressive movements. Arrested for this reason in 1849 he was deported to a Siberian prison for four years. Returned lieutenant, he resigned from the army in 1860 and is really committed to writing. Epileptic player in debt and a dark character, Dosto´evski first leads a life of wandering in Europe, during which he became a staunch liberal for his country and especially a staunch patriot, before being recognized his return to Russia in 1871 after the publication of Crime and Punishment (1866) and the Idiot (1868) which opened the period of maturity where the author wrote his most accomplished works: the Eternal Husband (1870) the Demons (1871) and the Brothers Karamazov (1880). Dostoevsky's novels are sometimes called "metaphysical", as the anguished question of free will and the existence of God is at the heart of his thinking, as the figure of Christ. However, his works are not "thesis novels", but novels where dialectically opposed views with different characters who build themselves, through their actions and their social interactions
