Fjodor Dostojevskij

Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821–1881) took the novel art to new artistic heights with his multifaceted works Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, Evil Spirits and The Brothers Karamazov. The novels, together with Leo Tolstoy's epic stories, have become images of the Great Russian Novel. Literary critics worldwide have hailed him as one of the greatest writers in world literature. His work has also influenced the literary trends modernism and existentialism as well as literary criticism. In 1847, Dostoevsky joined a group of intellectuals who discussed utopian socialism, and were associated with communism and terrorism. He was together with other members he was arrested and imprisoned in 1849. They were all sentenced to death, but at the execution the weapons were lowered at the last second and a messenger announced that the Tsar decided to spare their lives. Dostoevsky was at several minutes convinced that he was going to die, which has been carried over to many of his novel characters, who often and repeatedly find themselves in a state where they believe it is to be executed.
