"Russian literature was never so lucky before..." report by Vladimir Kantor
The head of the International Laboratory for the Study of Russian and European Intellectual Dialogue V.K. Kantor made a presentation in the Dostoevsky library
On November 13, 2018, in the Dostoevsky library within the framework of the series "Dostoevsky. 3D." Professor V. K. Kantor gave a lecture dedicated to the relations between A.G. Snitkina and F.M. Dostoevsky.
According to Professor Kantor the meeting with Anna Grigorievna Snitkina was the main success in the life of the writer, without which there would not have been that Dostoevsky, whom we now know. It was with her help that the greatest novels of the classics were written, and some of them in a short term. Thanks to her, Dostoevsky gave up Russian roulette and was able to write in spite of hard turns of life. Together they survived the death of two children, poverty, disease. Dostoevsky was a difficult person, to put it mildly. Anna Grigorievna was 25 years younger than him, but at the same time she gave him everything one could only dream of in marriage.
