    I don't remember Fathers and Children being a particularly bleak book, so why does Turgenev look so doomed?

      I hate it that books become "cringe" just because the normies read it. NLH was obscure until that swedish youtuber reviewed it, now everyone thinks it's a normiebook.
      The average normgroid doesn't understand Dostoevsky and doesn't understand Dazai. For God's sake- they think the whole of Mishimaźs works are dedicated to advancing LGBT rights and stems from his inability to have butseggs. They are incapable of understanding ANY complexity at all. They replace every nuance with (CURRENT POLITICAL TOPIC) and assume every pathos is related to them personally.

      It's the same with Dostoevsky and I'm tired of normies painting him with their ideology and political beliefs.

        Dosto has always been for pseuds. Your attempt to coopt that guy's post into an aktually post somehow revalidating the author to express your pathetic butthurt rant goes to show he's right. It is for undergrad basic b***h pseuds and always has been. Dosto's writing sucks. The prose sucks. The story sucks. People have always loved to project their political beliefs on to these because they think fancy book with big author name makes them seem smart which is exactly what you're doing too. Go watch The Chekist, these moron rich hipsters are eating at some café and talking about muh heckin dostevesky. He's always been reactor grade pseud fuel.

          >. Dosto's writing sucks. The prose sucks. The story sucks.

          This is a exaggeration, but its clear that Dostoevsky is primarily valued for his philosophy instead of his literary talents. His prose is poor compared to truly great writers like Dickens or Melville.

          I read Brothers Karamazov and despite having its moments, the entire plot structure is literally that of a JRPG side quest.

        15 years ago Dostoy was high brow because all the 19th ce French novelists simped for him as well as the 20th ce Modernists simped (like Virginia Woolfe thereby further cementing his status for being liked by a feminist). But politics happen, then people fold, and show their vacuity. Kind of like judith butler.

    The opposite. Dogstoevsky if for low T feminine homosexual incels who are virgins past the age of 20 and cope with their lack of socialization by adopting a faux religious worldview. Nabokov is an aesthetics chad for well-socialized people who lead active and satisfying sexual lives

      Contrary to what people say, I think he only has a handful of good short stories (and for some reason it's hard to find them all in one collection). My favorite is "An Anonymous Story", which is a serious parody of the undercover spy thriller. Another good one is "The Duel".

      I've always found Chekov to be unbelievably cruel in his fiction for no good reason, which always put me off.

    why does everything need to be turned into a wojak meme nowadays
    can zoomers not read anything without imagining the characters as based chads or wojaks

      There were probably not many zoomers here when that was made and most of those wojaks are considerably older than that chart and came froma thread from the early days of IQfy. This 'subculturefication' of literature you speak of is what made IQfy what it was.

    That's not true though, and you sound mad. There's a reaon why authors like Dostoevsky and his books are found in any Oxbridge or Ivy League world literature classs.
