This is an exploration of Dostoevsky's major works, with a focus on his women characters, his references to rape and men's abuse of females, and his construction of the feminine. The book is intended not to impose feminist ideology upon the writer, but to enlarge feminist discourse through Dostoevsky. It explores new readings with a sense of their positioning at the end of the century without subsuming the woman question within a larger frame.
