Description
Originally published between 1860-2 in the journal “Vremya”, “The House of the Dead” is a semi-autobiographical novel by Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky about life in a Siberian prison camp. Having himself spent four years in such a camp after his exile for involvement in the “Petrashevsky Circle”, Dostoevsky was able to paint a vivid and authentic picture of the conditions and the characters of the convicts, presented here as a loose collection of events, facts, and philosophical discussions. Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (1821 – 1881) was a Russian novelist, essayist, short story writer, journalist, and philosopher. His literature examines human psychology during the turbulent social, spiritual and political atmosphere of 19th-century Russia, and he is considered one of the greatest psychologists in world literature. A prolific writer, Dostoevsky produced 11 novels, three novellas, 17 short stories and numerous other works. This volume is not to be missed by fans of Russian literature and collectors of Dostoevsky's seminal work. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.

display_descriptionPublished in 1862 after Dostoyevsky's imprisonment in a Siberian labor camp, "The House of the Dead" is a collection of memoirs, related by themes, that portrays the horrific life of convicts. The author drew on his own experiences in prison to depict the squalor, destitution, and severity of a Siberian camp with remorseless detail. Dostoyevsky reveals the characters of many of the other convicts, which includes the depravity many have come to expect through their mental and physical suffering. The protagonist is Aleksandr Petrovich, a gentleman who additionally struggles with the malice of the largely peasant-populated prison. He gradually comes to accept his situation, experiencing a spiritual re-awakening in the unremitting strife of penal servitude. Though told with uncharacteristic detachment, "The House of the Dead" is a work of humanity, not without sympathy or admiration of those in Siberia, that proclaims the tragedy of those institutions, both for the inhabitants and for the country of Russia, in one of Dostoyevsky's masterpieces.
