`Read Pdf à Winter Notes on Summer Impressions õ Winter Notes on Summer Impressions is an early book length essay by Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky which he composed while traveling in western Europe Many commentators believe that in the themes it explores, the essay anticipates his later work Notes from the Underground In June , Dostoevsky left Petersburg on his first excursion to Western Europe Ostensibly making the trip to consult Western specialists about his epilepsy, he also wished to see firsthand the source of the Western ideas he believed were corrupting Russia Over the course of his journey he visited a number of major cities, including Berlin, Paris, London, Florence, Milan, and Vienna He recorded his impressions in Winter Notes on Summer Impressions, which were first published in the Februaryissue of Vremya Time , the periodical of which he was the editor Among other themes, Dostoevsky reveals his Pan Slavism, rejecting European culture as corrupt and exhorting Russians to resist the temptation to emulate or adopt European ways of life Fyodor Dostoyevsky s Winter Notes on Summer Impressions is the story of a trip to Germany, Britain, and France that the author made in 1862 Since he was not too long before released from prison and penal army duty in Siberia, I think this work was written solely to escape censure from the censors who were watching his output.Why else would he slam the Germans, British, and French and then return to Europe later with altogether different views This is not one of Dostoyevsky s better works. Fyodor is the crotchetiest travel writer of the 19thC and this diary reads like Jeremy Clarkson Goes to France mixed with Karl Marx s Further Criticisms of the Bourgeois Superstructure Paris Edition Two unpublished titles that sum up Fyodor s critique of the French bourgeoisie, French attitudes and French gentlemen He hates those damn frogs Baguette chomping cheese eating surrender monkeys, set in their provincial ways Curse those swine And don t get Fyodor started on those Polish Jews, oh Fyodor is the crotchetiest travel writer of the 19thC and this diary reads like Jeremy Clarkson Goes to France mixed with Karl Marx s Further Criticisms of the Bourgeois Superstructure Paris Edition Two unpublished titles that sum up Fyodor s critique of the French bourgeoisie, French attitudes and French gentlemen He hates those damn frogs Baguette chomping cheese eating surrender monkeys, set in their provincial ways Curse those swine And don t get Fyodor started on those Polish Jews, oh no no Louses and vermin and swine and mountebanks and rascals and all those other words that pop up on every second page of Fyodor s novels One day the Russian workers will seize control and form a benign Communist state, like the one in China, only better Fyodor can be quite funny at times, like Jeremy Clarkson, but then the haze clears and the homespun bigotry and xenophobia stand there, hands on hips, shaking their little heads As another reviewer states, Fyodor s non fiction was poor try reading the perennially out of print Diary of a Writer for confirmation of that but if you re a completist, it s short and won t try your patience too much For most part, I am formed out of impressions the books I have read have left on me, and Dostoevsky s books are the strongest impressions So, believe me, when I tell you it is most redundant of his works It is him at his worst all the prejudices and problems and social behaviour generalised and sourced to nationality of people whether people are French, English or Russian and none of his awesomeness The observations aren t interesting themselves they are just used for sub standard come For most part, I am formed out of impressions the books I have read have left on me, and Dostoevsky s books are the strongest impressions So, believe me, when I tell you it is most redundant of his works It is him at his worst all the prejudices and problems and social behaviour generalised and sourced to nationality of people whether people are French, English or Russian and none of his awesomeness The observations aren t interesting themselves they are just used for sub standard comedy Best for the Dosty completist.Never one known for the cheeriness of his themes, it shouldn t surprise anyone that crusty, crabby, the color yellow hating Dosty find much to delightfully loathe during his first trip abroad in 1862 Even the Dosty novice will recognize that he was very much enad with his own culture and people, so the fact that his impressions of Germany, France, and England are laughingly negative can t be considering shocking Of course, by his own admission, D bag says that Best for the Dosty completist.Never one known for the cheeriness of his themes, it shouldn t surprise anyone that crusty, crabby, the color yellow hating Dosty find much to delightfully loathe during his first trip abroad in 1862 Even the Dosty novice will recognize that he was very much enad with his own culture and people, so the fact that his impressions of Germany, France, and England are laughingly negative can t be considering shocking Of course, by his own admission, D bag says that he spent hardly any time anywhere, especially in Germany, so his criticisms are perhaps unfair As is typical of this early Dosty, who up to this point had published only a handful of short works, been sent into exile, and had a shitty love life, he is muchfree wheeling, acerbic and slapdash than he would later become in his writings This despite his largely bleak views of western Europe, but, hey, if there is one thing Dosty was consistent at, it was being inconsistent
