The Devil's Doll: About a Romantic Motif in Dostoevsky and Tolstoy
The article examines the similarity in details of the appearance and the biography of Anatole Kuragin, a character in Leo Tolstoy’s novel War and Peace, and Nikolai Stavrogin, the hero of Fyodor Dostoevsky’s novel The Possessed. The questions are raised at what point in the development of his idea he could turn to the precedent of Tolstoy’s rake, as well as what role they play in the characterization of Dostoevsky’s protagonist.
Keywords. Dostoevsky, The Possessed, Stavrogin, Tolstoy, War and peace, Kuragin, demonism, doll, mask.
