Subject: Nietzsche & Dostoevsky

There is also Leo Shestov's (spelling varies depending on the translator) 
famous book, NIETZSCHE AND DOSTOEVSKY. He is one of Russia's foremost 
philosophers/literary critics, and, according to some accounts I have 
read, regarded as one of their greatest prose stylists. He was 
pre-communist (and, I believe, fled Russia after the revolution), so you 
don't have to worry about propagandizing. I have to admit I haven't been 
able to get my hands on a copy of this, but another essay of his that I 
read, "Dostoevsky and Kierkegaard," was excellent.
