Fyodor Dostoevsky passed away in 1881, but still generates discussions about his quality as an author and the relevance of his works. Recognized and revered still in life, Dostoevsky was later questioned by such peremptory figures as Nabokov who said: "Dostoevsky's gallery of characters consists almost exclusively of neurotics and lunatics." Nowadays, the themes of his works and his morally contentious characters generate controversy even at the high summit of Russian politics. But Dostoevsky always had grand admirers, such as Hemingway, who said: "There were things believable and not to be believed, but some that changed you as you read them; frailty and madness, wickedness and saintliness, and the insanity of gambling were there to know ". Even outside literary circles, Russian questioning about the human soul has left its mark, as Albert Einstein wrote: "Dostoevsky offers me more than any scientist, more than Gauss," also describing Russian as "great religious writer" which explores "the mystery of spiritual existence"
So that you can join the great minds and form your opinion on this giant of Russian literature, the critic August Nemo separated seven of his short stories for your appreciation:
