Fedor Dostoevsky. Suffering, clothed in flesh



In the article a difficult period of the writer's life is considered - the period of travels to Italy, when the writer was forced to turn to all kinds and sources of earnings in order to somehow maintain his good name. Insufficient attention is paid to the researchers of the genre of Dostoevsky's letters, which, meanwhile, themselves can rightfully be considered a finished artwork of a small genre with its plot, string, culmination and denouement.
