This thesis will situate Dostoevsky’s short narratives (written in the 1860’s to the 1870’s) in a psychoanalytic context, in which the concepts of shame and repetition as functions of otherness will be primary analytic tools to interrogate the Bakhtinian foundation of reading Dostoevsky’s poetics through the categories of the dialogic and the chronotope of the threshold. The thesis will analyse by what aesthetic means Dostoevsky constructs the “modern” subject.
