“The Language and Literary Works of F.M. Dostoevsky”: A lecture by Professor Igor Ruzhitsky (in English)

Friday 18 February, 19:00 - 20:30

Professor Ruzhitsky will devote his lecture to a discussion of the distinctive lexical system of Dostoevsky’s idiolect as well as a number of philosophical questions which run through his body of works. Through the prism of the great writer’s use of language, Professor Ruzhitsky will explore a series of key concepts in Dostoevsky’s writings: life, death, love, suffering, fear and laughter.

“Man is a mystery. This mystery must be unravelled, and if you spend your whole life trying to unravel it, don’t say that your time has been wasted. I am at work on this mystery, for I want to be a human being…”
(F.M. Dostoevsky, 1839)
