I knew little of Dostoyevsky when I started, but I now have a good general understanding. For anyone interested in Russian literature or for a student needing a quick introduction, this is an essential resource. In just a few commutes in the car or on a train, the listener will understand the trajectory of Dostoyevsky’s life and the themes in his major works. I see some similarities to themes in Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s work. This will be something I’d like to further explore.
