Sample text

71 Akulka seems to represent an eternal victim, suffering without guilt and dying a sacrificial death. But is there, in the final analysis, meaning to her death? Can we read her as an alter Christus who signals hope in the darkness of Russian life, or is she just one more victim of its senseless brutality? The “Lenten” scenes of scourging and death flow into the celebration of Easter. The Orthodox prisoners, divided into seven shifts, spend one week fasting, attending church services, making their confessions, and receiving communion.

We don’t have the right not to accept what you are giving from you, for you yourself say that your happiness lies in this. But what are we to do when our hearts ache continuously for your happiness. You also take everything from us” (5: 80). Dostoevsky further implies that a society based on such mutual self-giving would be the realization of the maxim “Love one another and all this will come to you as well” (5: 80) – a conflation of Christ’s words in John 13: 34 and Matthew 6: 33. The writer does not mention Christ directly and he does not adduce a specific example of genuine self-giving in the section of Winter Notes from which the above passage is taken.

The Reform of Peter the Great . . cost us too dearly; it separated us from the people [narod] . . But now the separation is coming to an end . . And now before entering this new life, reconciliation of the followers of Peter’s reforms with the popular base [s narodnym nachalom] has become essential . . Unification whatever it may cost, regardless of the sacrifice, and the sooner the better – this is our foremost idea, this is our motto. (18: 35–37) The need for rapprochement between the intelligentsia and the narod would remain a consistent motif of pochvennichestvo and a pervasive theme in Dostoevsky’s writing for the rest of his life.
