Nabokov-Apologet: Zashchita Luzhina ili zashchita Dostoevskogo / Nabokov-the Apologist: Luzhin's defense or Dostoevsky's?

Olga Meerson. "Nabokov-Apologet: Zashchita Luzhina ili zashchita Dostoevskogo / Nabokov-the Apologist: Luzhin’s defense or Dostoevsky’s?." Dostoevsky and 20th Century / Dostoevskij i XX vek. Ed. V.A. Viktorovich, A.G. Gacheva, T.A. Kasatkina, Olga Meerson, et al. Moscow: Institute of World Literature Publishing / Institut Mirovoj Literatury, 2007: 358-381

The article explores the ironic relationship between Nabokov and Dostoevsky-an author to whom Nabokov's poetics owes precisely that poetic sophistication which Nabokov himself denies Dostoevsky -- the main character's Bakhtinian "Infinalizability" in The Defense, as well as several purely linguistic Dostoevisms that testify to this genealogy's validity and haunting presence in Nabokov's literary concerns.
