This is an investigation of the Russian demonic novel through the works of Gogol, Dostoevsky, Bely, Bulgakov, and Nabokov. This study of Russian literature examines the development of the demonic in key Russian novels from the last two centuries. Defining the demonic novel as one that takes as its theme an evil presence incarnated in the protagonists and attributed to the Devil (as understood in Judeo-Christian terms), Weiner investigates the way the content of such a book can compromise the moral integrity of its narration and its sense of authorship. Weiner contends that the theme of demonism increasingly infects the narrative point of view from Gogol's ""Dead Souls"" to Dostoevsky's ""The Devils"", and Bely's ""Petersburg"", until Nabokov exorcised the demonic novel through his fiction and his criticism.
