Dostoievsky, F. M.  
The Diary of a Writer (2 Volumes)
Publisher: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1949 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall First Scribner edition. Translated and annotated by Boris Brasol. "..Dostoievsky expounded his political philosophy in The Diary of a Writer. The last is, in a way, a unique literary production, hav ing no counterpart in world literature. Evading every established belletristic pattern (novel, satire, drama, reminiscences, essay, fable, etc.), it is a bold attempt on the part of a man of genius to enter into an informal colloquy with his readers, critics and correspondents - at time, on most intimate topics. In some of the sketches appearing in the Diary Dostoievsky touches upon many of the burning problems with which Russia had to contend after the liberation of the peasants in 1861. The people became confused and the country was in a state of both natural and stimulated unrest. These conditions, of necessity found their reflections in literature, which, in Russia, has always been an accurate barometer of public moods and aspirations.." xvi + 1, 096 pages with index. Both volumes are in GOOD condition; expected wear for a book of this age and genre, but no serious flaws. No dust jacket.
