Poor folk. Fyodor Dostoevsky.

Poor folk

New York: Ardis.

Soft cover, 143 pp.

Poor Folk, Dostoevsky’s first novel, released in 1846, occupies a position of particular interest and importance in the history of Russian literature, as it represents the confluence of important literary traditions, especially the influence of Gogol. While a natural starting point for anyone who reads Dostoevsky, the author made a point of saying that the style of the novel was not his. Robert Dessaix’s introduction to this edition focuses on the history of styles that Dostoevsky used in this very self-consciously literary debut.
