"This volume, the third of five in Joseph Frank's widely acclaimed biography of Dostoevsky, begins with the writer's return to St. Petersburg, after a ten-year Siberian exile. Having met with sudden fame as the highly praised young author of Poor Folk in 1845, Dostoevsky was abruptly forgotten after his arrest and exile for political conspiracy. He came back to the capital determined to reestablish his literary reputation. Now as the editor of and writer for two literary journals that joined in the cultural and social ferment of Russia in the early 1860s, Dostoevsky was to discover the themes that would underlie his mature masterpieces. Frank describes the intricate process of the novelist's self-definition, in interaction with all the forces of the "stir of liberation" under Alexander II."--Cover.

Reseña de usuario  - Ben - Goodreads

Deals mostly with Dostoevsky's writings in the journals Time and Epoch, which he ran with his brother. There are some great chapters dealing with Russian Nihilism and Notes from Underground . My least favorite of the three volumes so far, but still an exciting and interesting read. Leer reseña completa
