Dostoyevsky and the Process of Literary Creation

Catteau's highly acclaimed book on Dostoyevsky has already won three French literary awards, and now appears in English for the first time. This is an original and detailed attempted to reexamine Dostoyevsky the artist, tracing the creative process from its notebook beginnings to its novelistics expression, and at the same time analyzing the structures of time and space, the role of color, and other important textual features. For this edition, the author has revised his book and updated the bibliography giving, where possible, references to the Soviet Academy of Sciences' edition of Dostoyevsky's works and to English versions of critical sources.
