About this product
- DescriptionFyodor Dostoevsky's first vel, Netochka Nezvava, which was never completed, remains the least studied and understood of the writer's long fiction, yet it was a seedbed for ideas that became hallmarks of his major works. This critical vel was the first in Dostoevsky's corpus to focus on the psychology of children and the first to feature a woman in a leading and narrative role. Thomas Gaiton Marullo contends that this unfinished vel provides a striking example of what psychologists today call codependency. Marullo shows how, at age twenty-eight, Dostoevsky intuited and illustrated the workings of emotional addiction almost a century and a half before it became the scholarly focus of practitioners of mental health.
