Dostoyevsky (1821–1881) was a Russian writer of novels, short stories and essays. His literary works explore human psychology in the troubled political, social and spiritual context of 19th-century Russia.

"The Idiot" is considered one of the most brilliant literary achievements of the "Golden Age" of Russian literature.

Fiona Givens: "Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote that God wins power and space in this world by his weakness. This novel emphasizes for me the power to be found in meekness, kindness and sacrifice."
