Contributor History

Biography
Fyodor Dostoevsky’s (1821–1881) first novel, Poor Folk, was published in 1846 to great acclaim. In the early 1860s he edited two magazines, Time and Epoch, in collaboration with his brother Mikhail. Both magazines were closed by the censors, and in 1864 his wife and brother both died, leaving him in charge of their families and deeply in debt. In that same year he wrote Notes from Underground, which was the prelude to the five great novels that crowned his work: Crime and Punishment (1866), The Idiot (1868), Demons (1872), The Adolescent (1875), and The Brothers Karamazov (1880).

. . . a well-perfumed friend, wise both
in the olfactory and in love, taught me
to spray with economy, to wear scent
as a private pleasure, evident only to
a lover in kissing distance.

One’s opportunities to be unhappy are

Unlimited.     Or limited, but only by

One’s own imagination, which is powerful

But fragile, is defenseless,     but is limited

Only by things unseen.     As Bark Psychosis did it

As life encroaches on the dreaming
bedpost, you remember

a chip of ice you found in river
sludge, its sheen a mute witness

to increments of change
as lens and pure belief.
