Zhenikhi Dostoevskogo v ‘Zashchite Luzhina’ Nabokova (Dostoevsky’s Bridegrooms in Nabokov’s Defense)

Olga Meerson. "Zhenikhi Dostoevskogo v ‘Zashchite Luzhina’ Nabokova (Dostoevsky’s Bridegrooms in Nabokov’s Defense)." Dostoevskij I XX-j vek / Dostoevsky and the 20th Century. Ed. Tatiana Kasatkina, Karen Stepanian. Moscow: The Dostoevsky Committee, IMLI (Institute of World Literature), 2007.

The article is a reworking of an earlier publication in English. It explores what Nabokov's chess player Luzhin owes to Dostoevsky's two fiances, Luzhin in Crime and Punishment and Myshkin, in The Idiot, as well as the literary patterns Nabokov uses to express his ingratitude for Dostoevsky -- or to cover up his anxiety of influence, depending on the reader's taste or/and critical school.
