On the occasion of Fyodor M. Dostoevsky’s 200th birthday on November 11, 2021, the November issue of Literaturkritik.de Several articles by Manfred Orlick have appeared. In addition, on this occasion we have our own copy of a digital edition of many of the writings of Sigmund Freud with his article published in 1928. Dostoevsky and the killing of the father added. “The Brothers Karamazov is the greatest novel ever written,” Freud wrote in this analysis of Dostoevsky’s novel. Marcel Reich-Ranicki later reciprocated when he wrote in the column “Ask Reich-Ranicki” Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung He talked about his own experiences with Russian literature:
I began – in my student days – with Dostoevsky’s novel The Brothers Karamazov. The very interesting and suspenseful novel is constantly concerned with the question of who killed old Karamazov. In the introduction to the plot appear the three sons of the murdered man, three wonderful and very different characters. All three are guilty – and innocent at the same time. At the time, when I read this book, ignoring my homework and friends, I thought it was the best novel in the world. Between Us: I still believe it. (Fez, 19.11.2006)
