More Dostoevsky

Another fine day, laden with sun and pipesmoked evenings spent with Fydor. There is much to ponder on the role of the duel in Russian novels. I just happened a memory of reading Lermontove in the summer sun at the Great lawn. It sounds so prohibitive, no? What was later to become samizdat was originally the Dionysians and its second (and last) selection was The Idiot: I played the title role and was the sole reader, fast forward to 2006, thats 13 years later for ye amateurs, to the unchanged present.

As much as the Burton beckons, I am only taking the Possessed to Ohio.
