Review quote

This collection gives us a sense of the depth of Dostoevsky's insights into human life and suffering and of his profound understanding of the tensions and dangers of modernity. Guignon's Introduction is a brilliant study that shows how profoundly the 'legend of the Grand Inquisitor' speaks to our day. --Charles Taylor, McGill University Guignon's Introduction is by far the best available to these texts, and is, for its clarity and depth, one of the finest Introductions to complex literary or philosophical material that I've ever read. --Stephen L. Collins, Babson College This text worked beautifully in my Intro to the Western Humanities course. I especially appreciated Guignon's insightful Introduction, the selection of chapters, the clear layout. --Dan Spencer, University of Montana
