Excerpt from Poor Folk, And, the Gambler IN 1877 Dostoyevsky recorded in his Diary of a Writer the circumstances in which he first obtained recognition from the literary celebrities of his day. 'with all my being I felt that this was a solemn moment, a turning point from which there could be no return, something quite new was beginning, something beyond anything I had ever imagined, even in my most fervid dreams. It was the most wonderful moment of my whole life. When I was a convict I remembered it, it gave me courage. Even now I still remember it with profound emotion.'
