Dostoevsky and Time


Originally this timeline was shamelessly lifted from the back of Great Short Works of Fyodor Dostoevsky.[1] Perhaps "shamefully" would be a better description of this pilfering, however: not due to qualms regarding plagiarism, but mostly because it seemed rather sloppy, sparse, slightly confused, and even in places somewhat misleading---but it did cover the key dates and events, and that is good enough. Well, no, maybe it isn't quite. So, as opportunity has arisen, the timeline has been edited, and expanded, corrected where possible by my unscholarly meanderings. For an excellent, very readable, full biography, please consider Fyodor Dostoyevsky: A Writer's Life.[4]
