Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881) the might of whose artistic talent considered equal in his writings to that of Shakespeare alone, gave expression in his writings to the boundless suffering of a humiliated and insulted mankind and the boundless anguish that suffering caused him. At the same time, however, he was violently opposed to any attempts to find a way to liberate mankind from humiliation and insult.
