A lot of people telling you that Dostoevsky is either a terrible writer or that he is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

I had the pleasure of actually reading it in a prison (as an employee), definitely contributed to the atmosphere. It's a nice story, really.

>>7330889
Anyone who thinks Dostoevsky is a terrible writer is a halfwit.
>>
>>7333916
I don't think nabokov thought much of him and he's definitely a fullwit
>>
>>7333947
Yeah, but Nabokov could sometimes be an overfull-wit.
>>
dostoevsky is good but please don't him too seriously it is embarrassing in 2015
>>
>>7333947
Nabokov hated Dostoevsky because he was Christian, mainly.

In an interview, he said about Pasternak: "I deeply sympathized with Pasternak's predicament in a police state; yet neither the vulgarities of the Zhivago style nor a philosophy that sought refuge in a sickly sweet brand of Christianism could ever transform that sympathy into a fellow writer's enthusiasm."

I imagine he considered Dostoevsky to suffer from the same "sickly sweet brand of Christianism".
>>
>>7334212
Yet he liked Tolstoy.
>>
>>7334215
Tolstoy was excommunicated by the Orthodox Church, and the work by Tolstoy actually informed by Christianity, such as War and Peace, Nabokov dislikes.

"War and Peace. A little too long. A rollicking historical novel written for the general reader, specifically for the young. Artistically unsatisfying. Cumbersome messages, didactic interludes, artificial coincidences. Uncritical of its historical sources."

>Nabokov hated Dostoevsky because he was Christian, mainly.

I'm sick and tired of people derailing the threads of authors Nabokov commented on with his quotes and I'm done responding to it in hopes it'll stop, but wow, you are wrong.

>>7334245
Good. Your comments are worth shit.
