LITERATURE

 

Fyodor Dostoevsky, now recognised as a novelist of global significance, draws on his own experience of industrial poverty, military training, gambling indebtedness, legal vacuity, religious hypoocrisy and personal epilepsy to explore what it means to be human. His sense of authentic Christianity is at odds with rational egoism and external obedience.
