Notes

Abstract: My thesis explores the various objections and affirmations of the Christian religion as personified in Fyodor Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov. I have chosen to approach the work from the angle of an unfiltered reader response. I seek to understand what Dostoyevsky's novel communicates to the reader and how the reader might naturally respond to the text rather than what the novel says about Dostoyevsky's personal intent. In using this method, I hope to demonstrate the ways in which Dostoyevsky draws his characters as various incarnations of a single spiritual conflict, and how, as the story unfolds, he uses the events of the novel to comment on various ideologies within the text. I begin by dissecting Ivan Karamazov's atheistic revolt against Christianity; then, in illustrating the thesis-antithesis pattern of the novel, I explore the spiritual response to Ivan's rebellion through the character Alyosha and the virtuous image. Finally I examine the eldest brother Mitya as the battlefield within which the preceding arguments and counter-arguments clash.
