Fyodor Dostoevsky Life Works Events


Fyodor Dostoevsky, one of the most famous writers in classical Russian literature, spent the most interesting years of his life in the city of St Petersburg. The city features in many of his works, sometimes as background, more often as an active character. Petersburg illustrates his novels superbly.

Twenty central episodes in the writer’s life and works will be strikingly and movingly displayed using digitally recreated lithographs, engravings and photographs from the 19th century; the images are accompanied by short textual commentaries. The aim of the exhibition is to provide an ever-greater understanding of the writer’s creativity.
