Review quote

"Leatherbarrow's synthesis of past critical achievement judiciously discriminates between factual commentary and interpretation, as well as between interpretation supported by evidence of Dostoevsky's documented or manifest intent, and interpretation generated by a critic's philosophy or idiosyncratic response to the text...Leatherbarrow's book will be a valuable teaching aid, but it is also a work well worth the literary scholar's time." Victor Terras, Slavic Reviewshow more
