Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (1821-1881) was born in Moscow. After the death of his mother in 1837, he was sent to the St Petersburg Engineering Academy, where he studied for five years and eventually graduated as an engineer. In 1844, however, Dostoevsky gave up engineering to write. His translation of Balzac's Eugenie Grandet came out in 1844, and his first novel, Poor People, was published in 184b'. During this time Dostoevsky also became interested in Utopian Socialism - a political affiliation which would lead to his deportation, in 1850, to Siberia. He was imprisoned for four years in a penal settlement, and served for four more thereafter as a soldier in Semipalatinsk. The experience changed his life and writing: whilst in prison he became a member of the Russian Orthodox Church, a monarchist, and upon his return to Moscow, he wrote about his experience as a prisoner m Notes from the House of the Dead (1862). In 1862, Dostoevsky travelled around Europe for the first time, an experience which also marked his writing. He was a great admirer of the English novel, in particular the works of Charles Dickens, but he disliked Europe. London, above all, was Dostoevsky's 'Baal', the centre of world capitalism, and he used the Crystal Palace as a symbol of the corrupting influence of modernity in Notes from Underground (1864). Upon his return to Russia, Dostoevsky wrote some of his best novels, including Crime and Punishment (1866), The Idiot (1868) and The Brothers Karamazov (1880) which he completed just before his death. Having been largely ignored by English language readers in the nineteenth century, Dostoevsky is now considered to be the most popular and influential Russian author read in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The penetrating psychological nature of Dostoevsky's novels, his obsessive grappling with conscience, guilt and God, as well as the brilliance of his characterisation and plots, continue to inspire new generations of readers, writers and thinkers. Dostoevsky's novels are undisputed masterpieces.
