Updated: Jul 28

Birth: November 11, 1821, Moscow, Russia

Death: February 9, 1881, St. Petersburg, Russia


Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky was born on November 11, 1821 in Moscow. Dostoevsky published his first book Poor Folk in 1846. Dostoevsky was arrested in 1849, for alleged involvement in a conspiracy against the state. The novels he wrote after exile glorified Russian literature:


I would like to share with you today; The Landlady by Dostoevsky.



Dostoevsky's literary language continues to change, approaching its original state, which we will meet in later books.


At least Dostoevsky raised the concept of the story because for me he became a man who fell asleep, when writing the last pages of books. So much so that I have seen stories in my books that I have read so far - including this book - that have not been wanted to end. Actually, this style of Dostoevsky reminds me of human existence. We live our lives between the balance of fear and hope, and in the curiosity of what will happen after our death...


Take the characters mentioned in the book and watch, listen and experience as if you are in a theater culture, a culture that has been forgotten. Like always Dostoevsky makes us wonder what might happen, while reading his usual stories.


With the book "The Landlady", I think I am already losing myself under the influence of Dostoevsky's changing spiritual movements.
