Abstract:

One of the most original thinkers of our time - Rene Girard - looks at one of the greatest novelists of all time - Feodor Dostoevsky - and draws new insights for the ages. Timeless themes of despair, hope and love take on new meaning when seen through the lens of the great Russian novelist and focused on our times. Although Rene Girard has lived in the United States for most of his life, this seminal work was first published in France fifteen years ago and is now available in English for the first time. It makes an important contribution to both literary and religious studies.
