The Grand Inquisitor is a parable in Fyodor Dostoyevsky's novel The Brothers Karamazov (1879–1880). It is told by Ivan, who questions the possibility of a personal and benevolent God, to his brother Alyosha, a novice monk. The Grand Inquisitor is an important part of the novel and one of the best-known passages in modern literature because of its ideas about human nature and freedom, and its fundamental ambiguity. The tale is told by Ivan with brief interruptive questions by Alyosha. In the tale, Christ comes back to Earth in Seville at the time of the Inquisition. He performs a number of miracles (echoing miracles from the Gospels). The people recognize him and adore him, but he is arrested by Inquisition leaders and sentenced to be burnt to death the next day. The Grand Inquisitor visits him in his cell to tell him that the Church no longer needs him. The main portion of the text is devoted to the Inquisitor explaining to Jesus why his return would interfere with the mission of the Church. The Inquisi ...

He made his film debut in the Laurence Olivier Othello in 1965. He then played romantic leads, notably in the BBC television series, The Borderers (1968–70), in which he was swashbuckling Gavin Ker. As a result, Gambon was asked by James Bond producer Cubby Broccoli to audition for the role in 1970, to replace George Lazenby. His craggy looks soon made him into a character actor, although he won critical acclaim as Galileo in John Dexter's production of The Life of Galileo by Brecht at the National Theatre in 1980. But it was not until Dennis Potter's The Singing Detective (1986) that he became a household name. After this success, for which he won a BAFTA, his work includes such controversial films as The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover, which also starred Helen Mirren. In 1992 he played a psychotic general in the Barry Levinson film Toys and he also starred as Georges Simenon's detective Inspector Jules Maigret in an ITV adaptation of Simenon's series of books.

Thought about submitting a story to this journal, which shall go nameless. But then I read the editor's/publisher's list of influences (Tod A., Martin Amis, Charles Bukowski, William S. Burroughs, Raymond Chandler, Joel and Ethan Coen, Roald Dahl, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Dock Ellis, John Fante, Dashiell Hammett, Gibby Haynes, Denis Johnson, Stephen King, Cormac McCarthy, Henry Rollins, Hubert Selby, Jr., Hunter S. Thompson, Jim Thompson, Tom Waits), and realized I shouldn't waste my time. I appreciate so many of the dudes listed here but it's too much of a sausage party for me.

The Great Sinner is a 1949 American drama film directed by Robert Siodmak. Based on the 1866 short novel The Gambler written by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, the film stars Gregory Peck, Ava Gardner, Frank Morgan, Ethel Barrymore, Walter Huston, Agnes Moorehead and Melvyn Douglas. Despite the first-class production values, The Great Sinner flopped at the box office. According to MGM records the film earned $1,179,000 in the US and Canada and $862,000 overseas resulting in a loss of $821,000. In a New York Herald Tribune review, the film was called "pompous and dull entertainment." Magazine Time added "the rich, exuberant flow of dialogue, incident, and atmosphere characteristic of the Russian master has been choked to a pedestrian trickle. Dostoevsky's brilliant insights into the tortured motives and emotions of his lovers have paled into klieg-lighted stereotypes." Screenwriter Christopher Isherwood, who adapted the novel, admitted to the failure, saying: "It should have been much better than it was.but apart from ...

"I believe like a child that suffering will be healed and made up for, that all the humiliating absurdity of human contradictions will vanish like a pitiful mirage, like the despicable fabrication of the impotent and infinitely small Euclidean mind of man, that in the world's finale, at the moment of eternal harmony, something so precious will come to pass that it will suffice for all hearts, for the comforting of all resentments, for the atonement of all the crimes of humanity, of all the blood that they've shed; that it will make it not only possible to forgive but to justify all that has happened. -Fyodor Dostoyevsky "The Brothers Karamazov" Dostoyevsky's Christianity surging through his literary imagination and craft.

In The Brothers Karamazov, the great Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky famously wrote that ”In a world without God, everything is permitted.” We are living in just such a world.
“Do you know I've been sitting here thinking to myself: that if I didn't believe in life, if I lost faith in the woman I love, lost faith in the order of things, were convinced in fact that everything is a disorderly, damnable, and perhaps devil-ridden chaos, if I were struck by every horror of man's disillusionment -- still I should want to live. Having once tasted of the cup, I would not turn away from it till I had drained it! At thirty though, I shall be sure to leave the cup even if I've not emptied it, and turn away -- where I don't know. But till I am thirty I know that my youth will triumph over everything -- every disillusionment, every disgust with life. I've asked myself many times whether there is in the world any despair that could overcome this frantic thirst for life. And I've come to the conclusion that there isn't, that is until I am thirty.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

"The most prescient portrait of the American character and our ultimate fate as a species is found in Herman Melville’s “Moby *** ” Melville makes our murderous obsessions, our hubris, violent impulses, moral weakness and inevitable self-destruction visible in his chronicle of a whaling voyage. He is our foremost oracle. He is to us what William Shakespeare was to Elizabethan England or Fyodor Dostoyevsky to czarist Russia. Our country is given shape in the form of the ship, the Pequod, named after the Indian tribe exterminated in 1638 by the Puritans and their Native American allies. The ship’s 30-man crew—there were 30 states in the Union when Melville wrote the novel—is a mixture of races and creeds. The object of the hunt is a massive white whale, Moby *** which in a previous encounter maimed the ship’s captain, Ahab, by dismembering one of his legs. The self-destructive fury of the quest, much like that of the one we are on, assures the Pequod’s destruction. And those on the ship, ...
Philosophy[edit] Fyodorov was a futurist, who theorized about the eventual perfection of the human race and society (i.e., utopia), including radical ideas like immortality, revival of the dead, space and ocean colonization. His writings greatly influenced mystic Peter Uspensky. He also had direct contact with early rocket theorist Konstantin Tsiolkovsky who visited the library where he worked over a 3-year period. He was also known to Tolstoy and Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Mankind’s Common Cause[edit] Fedorov argued that evolutionary process was directed towards increased intelligence and its role in the development of life. Man is the culmination of evolution, as well as its creator and director. He must direct it where his reason and morality dictate. Fedorov noted that mortality is the most obvious indicator of the yet imperfect, contradictory nature of Man and the deep reason for most evil and nihilism of man and mankind. Fedorov argued that the struggle against death can become the most natural cause uni ...

Black Swan is a 2010 American psychological thriller and horror film[3][4] directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring Natalie Portman, Vincent Cassel, and Mila Kunis. The plot revolves around a production of Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake ballet by a prestigious New York City company. The production requires a ballerina to play the innocent and fragile White Swan, for which the committed dancer Nina (Portman) is a perfect fit, as well as the dark and sensual Black Swan, which are qualities embodied by the new arrival Lily (Kunis). Nina is overwhelmed by a feeling of immense pressure when she finds herself competing for the part, causing her to lose her tenuous grip on reality and descend into a living nightmare. Aronofsky conceived the premise by connecting his viewings of a production of Swan Lake with an unrealized screenplay about understudies and the notion of being haunted by a double, similar to the folklore surrounding doppelgängers. Aronofsky cites Fyodor Dostoyevsky's "The Double" as another inspiration ...

This is also an appeal to all of us, to be aware and sensitive of our precious heritage, the rainforests and their inhabitants, and to help to conserve them. - Maba Jaffar Me Wild 2 This is the second artwork in the “Keep Me Wild” series by Maba. As the name implies, the painter is also referring the theme to her inner self. Wild, as in free to roam the planet! - Maba Jaffar

Moms, if reading is important to keep our minds fresh, what about for our kids? Consider this perspective on being read to: "He reads aloud to us until five o’clock in the morning, and we listen to him. It is a revelation of things rather than a reading. It is charming, it is like a bouquet of flowers—there is a bouquet of flowers in every line of each page." -Fyodor Dostoyevsky, "Poor Folk" Do you (or did you) read aloud to your kids? We have found that even older kids love to be read to, too! What are some of your favorite read aloud books?
I am a sick man . . . I am a spiteful man. —Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Need a new author to listen to...I prefer classics...anyone else out there enjoy historical fiction? Who would be good to listen to? (btw, I enjoy all kinds of stories, not just chic-flic type romances! but I prefer reading/listening to older older horror, no gothic (mostly), not much fantasy)...The problem is, I have read say Silas Marner by George Elliot and really liked it, but try to read Middlemarch or Adam Bede and it's like ugh! wordy, over descriptive! Same with Uncle Tom's H.B. Stowe...her other books aren't nearly as good...Does anyone actually like any of the Russian Novelists? I have thought about Anna Karenina(Tolstoy i think), (sP?) or Fyodor Dostoyevsky? I've heard good things, but the books are like 800+ pages...And that is intimidating, even for a self-proclaimed bookworm...

Dear John D. Rachel, novelist, I went on and searched for your name and your works. I must congratulate you. I noticed that all the reviews posted about “11-11-11” and “12-12-12” gave you 5 stars. You must be proud of the fact that the reviews of these two “novels” have received, so far and without exception, the highest rating possible! I randomly checked Amazon, and found that even Fyodor Dostoyevsky did not receive such a high honor as a solid 5 star rating-every time! I thought that Benjamin Franklin didn’t even match your fete but found that a book called “True Benjamin Franklin” still maintains the same rating as your novels. It astounds me that you are in such good company! I am proud of you. However, upon further investigation I found that at least 3 of your rave reviews for your “novelsl” came on the same day. It was April 19th 2011 that was your best day. Two five star reviews for 11-11-11 is a crowning achievement for you, but I also come to find that ther ...
