The Choices of Criticism


This book offers a close critical reading of all of Dostoevsky's major fiction. Included are analyses of "Poor Folk", "The Double", "Netochka Nezvanova", "The House of the Dead", "The Insulted and the Injured", "The Notes from the Underground", "Crime and Punishment", "The Idiot", "The Possesses", "The Adolescent", "The Dream of the Ridiculous Man", and "The Brothers Karmazov". The treatment is analytical and critical. Throughout it has been Dr. Wasiolek's aim to provide the reader with a balanced presentation of Dostoevsky's work shunning neither the idea of content, nor Dostoevsky's craft of fiction. In achieving this, the author has overcome a serious dichotomy that is all too common.
