- Final Thoughts
- “Father and son, fascinating monster and poignant poet, share in the one nature, villain and hero alike. This is the genius of Dostoevsky at full play, almost Shakespearean in its splendor.”
- “There are almost no normative personalities among Dostoevsky’s characters: they are what they will to be, and their wills are inconstant”
- “A silly poem by a silly student who never wrote two lines of poetry in his life.”
- “The truth, unfortunately, is almost always banal.”
