Immature Compassion in “The Idiot”

While studying “Christian Doctrine and the Arts” through the University of St. Andrew’s, I had the opportunity to read and write on Dostoevsky’s The Idiot, which was immensely fascinating. Once you get the hang of Russian novels (where everyone has ten different names and overly-intricate backstories), they prove to be incredibly satisfying studies!

My essay on immature compassion and failed Christ figures in The Idiot was published by Transpositions and can be read at the link below. Enjoy!
