This is not a shameless plug for my blog or thread, but a search to widen and deepen the conversation about this great writer. If you are interested, please drop in and join the conversation. Everyone is welcome.
About 35 years ago, I read The Brothers Karamazov, The Possessed, Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, A Raw Youth and Netochka Nezvanova.
My Mom, my 2 brothers and my sister, but not my Dad, all were reading several of these novels back at that time.
Later on, because I wanted to practice French, I read The Brothers Karamazov in French.
But after that I bought some lesson books from the book store at University of Alberta and have been struggling through ever since to get some reading knowledge of Russian.
I went on a buying spree this past winter and bought the first four of the above titles in Russian, and now I have even stronger motivation to get past Lesson 7 in my Russian for Everybody textbook by Robert L. Baker.
I am still going to give it a shot to try to read them all in Russian. (In Russian I also bought War and Peace and Dead Souls.)
35 years ago I heard somewhere about a work by Dostoyevsky called Diary of a Writer but I couldn't find it with all the other Penguin editions of Dostoyevsky that our bookstores carried at that time. But eventually I tracked one down published in 1973 by Octagon Books/Farrar, Straus and Giroux. 2 volumes, $50.00 CDN plus GST at The Bookseller. http://thebookseller.ca/app/ Happy day! So I discovered that Dostoyevsky was a journalist as well as a novelist.
