"In the depth and breath of tackling the universal questions of human freedom and responsibility and representing the modern psyche, F. M. Dostoevsky remained unsurpassed amongst Russian writers of his age, according to the testimony of his elder contemporary Saltykov-Shchedrin. Led by the Australian Dostoevsky specialist, Dr Slobodanka Vladiv-Glover (Monash University), and an international team of experts,
The Dostoevsky Journal: A Comparative Literature Review is publishing significant research on a range of subjects in literary theory, poetics of the novel, aesthetics, history of literature and archival materials focused on Dostoevsky's life and works."
