“Village Of Stepanchikovo”
However, his later published works did not attract much attention at that time. The writer was arrested in 1849 on the grounds that he was a member of the Petrashevsky group, which opposed the oppressive regime of Nicholas I.
When he was about to be shot, his sentence was commuted to exile and compulsory military service. After completing his sentence and returning from Siberia, he started publishing the magazine Vremya in Petersburg. Dostoevsky, with the characters he drew in the Village of Stepanchikovo, published in 1859, shows that the Russian personality is no different in the village than in the city.
