    N. K. Mikhailovsky, in his well-known and in many respects remarkable article, called Dostoevsky a "cruel talent." [N.K.

      Dostoevsky’s perspective on Raskolnikov’s controversial idea that some people are above the law and have the right to commit a crime is univocal. The motive of Dostoevsky’s creative work is legal. For the author, a tribunal is a tool of justice that is carried out through the callous law. This book illuminates the connectedness of Dostoevsky's literary art with his philosophical and psychological brilliance. Two Fyodor Dostoevsky conferences originating at the University of North Texas set the stage for this volume. Scholars contributed original papers focusing on how Dostoevsky's literary art and philosophical insights enrich one another.
