This book explores the aesthetic outlook of Dostoyevsky, as it found reflection in his unique literary writings. Professor Kashina concentrates on the writer’s views about art and man, and about beauty and its role in people’s lives. Dostoyevsky’s aesthetics are looked at against the background of the aesthetic theories of several of his contemporaries and predecessors in literature and philosophy. (From back cover.)
