    Description :

    “Dostoevsky wrote Poor Folk in a little over nine months in a narrow furnished room in an apartment house near St. Vladimir’s Cathedral in Petersburg, the result of an intensive psychological insight the author later called 'the visions of the Neva'. He had seen a Petersburg story taking place in dark corners, a pure and honest pretty clerk, a humiliated and sad girl…”
