"A brief review cannot do justice to the profundity, erudition, and spiritual as well as moral candor displayed in George Panichas's treatise.... Panichas's style combines lucidity, subtlety, and immediacy with a convincing eloquence which derives its force from a vision of undeniable truth.... Hopefully, Panichas's work will receive the widest possible circulation among academic specialists, literary critics, and educated readers." - Heinrich A. Stammler, Slavic Review; "[T]he deep erudition in these pages is alive with a sympathy and a sensitivity - at times even a passion - that bespeak a real sharing in the author's prophetic vision. As few works of criticism do, this is a book that deserves its place on the same shelf with the inspired fiction it examines." - Chronicles: A Magazine of American Culture; "Dr. Panichas' book on Dostoevsky is, indeed, a new milestone in the immense body of literature on the Russian genius." - Sergei Levitzky, Novoye Russkoye Slovo (Russian Daily)"
