DOSTOYEVSKY IN DUBLIN 4

Paper read to the Belfast Literary Society, October 6th, 2008.


Fact and fiction- an examination of an actual murder case in Dublin in 1936, and a novel published in 1978 following in its plot almost exactly the same story. It was not until a paperback edition appeared a decade later than anyone noticed the connection- then possibly because in the meantime, in 1985, Richard Cobb had brought out his autobiographical A Classical Education, recounting the details of the murder and his association with the murderer. All is explained, and some questions asked about the relationship between fact and fiction.
