Joan Pearson June 24, - A gradual easing back into the story. The stage is set, Alyosha makes his way into the world, a new and stronger man, Grushenka makes a surprisng decision and this should get the action going after three long weeks of delving into the mind of Dostoevsky and the forces motivating his characters.
So much gratitude to those of you who attempted to elucidate the polar-opposing thoughts of the Grand Inquisitor and Fr. Zosima's new Christian Brotherhood of Man in response to the wave of atheistic Socialism sweeping into Russia at this time.
