You feel Frank beginning slowly becoming less enamoured of Dostoyevsky in this volume; the antisemitism of these years often seems too much for him to bear, often resulting in sentences which praise the work, while acting as curtly worded invectives against Dostoevsky's character. There is no point in finding fault in Frank's judgements on Dostoyevsky's political, polemical rhetoric found in the Diary of A Writer articles, the letters and the journals -- they're acute and thoughtful as always.

This is the culmination of a five volume literary biography, the longest on any writer I am aware of - and the only one I have read of the five. It weighs in at more than 750 pages, and covers the last decade of Dostoevsky's life, when the writer's crusade for his vision for Russia really took off: he edited a "reactionary" newspaper, started his own (Writer's Diary), and wrote two novels, The Adolescent (aka A Raw Youth) and the blockbuster Brothers Karamazov, setting out his political stall de [...]

I had a difficult time finishing this, only because its last chapter is so moving and well-written. I've invested a good deal of time into these five biographies. It was painful to witness the death of such a warmly portrayed character.The whole series is amazing, but this is the finest of JF's work. His analysis and approach brings to light Dostoevsky's reasoning and belief on irreproachable levels. With the help of the Writer's Diary and Dostoevsky's new-found fame, this volume reaches new hei [...]

Frank's five-part work is considered by many to be the definitive critical biography of Dostoevsky (in any language) and it will not take the reader long to see why. He displays an exhaustive knowledge of Dostoevsky's life, his world, and his time. However, his critical interaction with D's writings reveals more than knowledge--Frank clearly possesses an intimate understanding found in only the most masterful biographers.

Volume V of Frank's 2500-page literary biography. Thoroughly explores the last ten years of Dostoevsky's life, its events, the final development of his thought, and the publishing of that monumental literary work, the Brothers Karamazov. As throughout the biography, a full discussion on that work, and everything else he wrote during that time period.

I have spent almost a year reading this five volume academic work, i can only say it was an amazing journey, Prof. Frank writes so clearly and with such depth both in the study of Dostoevsky's work, his life, his time and Russia of the late 1800s. I may have to spend another year re-reading it.

The 5th and final vol. of Frank's bio; it covers his reading of Bros K. Even if you don't want to read the whole thing, it's worth the price to read F's gloss of that great novel.Otherwise, see my review re Vol 2, The Years of Ordeal, for more general comments that apply to both volumes.
