Original Title: El universo de Dostoievski

Dostoyevsky’s voice, which probes the depths of the human soul to portray the most sublime and the most terrible sentiments, continues to fascinate readers who recognise in his works a shared universe that is both dazzling and dangerously close and present. After several years of ardent reading, Tamara Djermanovic has been able to step back enough to offer a concise, illuminating analysis that does justice to the richness of a work replete with light and shadow, and an author that is both angelic and diabolical.

Praises

“A most agreeably readable and profound account of the literary constellation of this brilliant novelist, offering understanding of the Russian soul.”
Rafael Fuentes, ABC

“This book is an excellent introduction to Dostoyevsky. Djermanovic has distilled her more than twenty years’ reading of his work into a text that goes from Dostoyevsky’s childhood to his death.”
Toni Montesinos, La Razón

“I love this book by Tamara Djermanovic because, when reading it, I felt that the many bits of information accumulated in my brain over so many years were ordered and illuminated, as if all the master’s works were suddenly grouped into one, in a kind of sudden, overwhelming lightning flash that lights up faces and landscapes.”
Fulgencio Argüelles, El Comercio

“A brilliant synthesis conveying an ability to bring the complexity of Dostoyevsky’s work and personality to an average reader who is not familiar with him.”
José, Ángel López Jiménez, Librújula
