After a brief military career, the illustrious Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky quickly turned to writing as a profession with the publication of his first novel, "Poor Folk," in 1846. This novel sparked a literary career that would eventually cement Dostoyevsky's reputation as one of the greatest novelists of the nineteenth century. Early participation in a literary/political group landed the writer in exile in Siberia for nearly a decade, an experience which had a profound influence on Dostoyevsky's understanding of fate, the suffering of human beings, and resulted in a powerful religious conversion experience. Dostoyevsky's works are marked by his penetrating exploration of psychology and morality, which are today cited as highly 'existentialist.' The Eternal Husband is one of Dostoevsky's most refined works, and represents a lifelong meditation on the duality of human consciousness through the lives of the husband and the ex-lover of a recently deceased woman.

This is the weakest thing of his I've read. The tone seems to shift constantly and the characters seem to change too. It almost reminds me of Tolstoy without the grand scale and with a lot more psychology. Also, I kept thinking it would end, and then it wouldn't. Though the ending may have been t...
