In this title, Rowan Williams explores the intricacies of speech, fiction, metaphor, and iconography in the works of one of literature's most complex, and most complexly misunderstood, authors. Williams' investigation focuses on the four major novels of Dostoevsky's maturity ("Crime and Punishment", "The Idiot", "Devils", and "The Brothers Karamozov"). He argues that understanding Dostoevsky's style and goals as a writer of fiction is inseparable from understanding his religious commitments. Any reader who enters the rich and insightful world of Williams' "Dostoevsky" will emerge a more thoughtful and appreciative reader for it.
