The Russian Soul - Fyodor Dostoevsky

The Russian Soul - Fyodor Dostoevsky


The Russian Soul, Selections from a Writer's Diary by Fyodor Dostoevsky | From Notting Hill Editions

A new anthology of Dostoevsky’s remarkable work A Writer’s Diary. A voluminous and variegated miscellany in which the celebrated author spoke to his readers about issues concerning Russia, it is a work as eerily prescient of global preoccupations in the twenty-first century as it is frequently overlooked. Brilliantly introduced by Rosamund Bartlett, distinguished scholar and writer, The Diary stands revealed as the work of a writer-activist and blogger avant la lettre, who sought to transform Russian society and humankind itself.

Dostoevsky's Writer's Diary was also his creative laboratory, and proves to be a source of fundamental importance in understanding the complex mind behind his artistic works.

Notting Hill Editions is devoted to the best in essayistic nonfiction writing, taking its cue from the vivid contribution of the short text to European cultural life, judging that the moment is right to reinvigorate the essay.
