Subtitle: Essays in Honour of Malcolm V. Jones. Publication date: 2006. Condition: As new. Content: "The essays on Dostoevsky collected in this volume are presented as a gift to Malcolm Jones, Emeritus Professor of Slavonic Studies at the University of Nottingham, on the occasion of his 65th birthday, and in celebration of his long and distinguished career as one of the world's leading Dostoevsky scholars. Contributors from Britain, Europe, Russia, North America, Australia and New Zealand explore the multi-faceted dynamics of Dostoevsky's fictional and non-fictional worlds, bringing new angles to topics as varied as education, music, the fantastic, the city, genre and narrative. With particular focus on the author's religious subtext and the dialogues he continues to provoke, the essays demonstrate the many ways in which Dostoevsky's readers are indeed led to the threshold of other worlds."
