Dostoyevsky, Fyodor, 1821-1881./ Coulson, Jessie Senior, 1903-, tr.  
Memoirs From The House of the Dead...Translated with a preface by Jessie Coulson.

Publisher: London, New York, Oxford University Press, 1956..
xii, 294 p. 19 cm. Translation of: Zapiski iz mertvogo doma. "In this almost documentary account of his own experiences of penal servitude in Serbia, Dostoevsky describes the physical and mental suffering of the convicts, the squalor and the degradation, in relentless detail. The inticate procedure whereby the men strip for the bath without removing their ten-pound leg-fetters is an extraordinary tour de force, compared by Turgenev to passages from Dante's Inferno. Terror and resignation - the rampages of a pyschopath, the brief sertence interlude of Christmas Day - are evoked by Dostoevsky, writing several years after his release, with a strikingly uncharacteristic detachment. For this reason, House of the Dead is certainly the least Dostoevskian of his works, yet, paradoxically, it ranks among his great masterpieces." From the library of Prof. Vincent Tomas of the Brown University Department of Philosophy. Stock# 44,419. Vg, some pencil notes on fly-leaf / no dj.

Appr.: | AUD 11.63 CAD 11.25 EUR 8.00 GBP 6.37 JPY 1,000.00 MXN 125.00 ZAR 108.70
