Summary:
Most discussion of sexuality in the work of Dostoevsky have been framed in Freudian terms, but Dostoevsky himself wrote from a decidedly pre-Freudian perspective. By looking at some of the views of human sexual development that were available in Dostoevsky's time, Fusso gives us a new way of understanding a critical element in his writing.
