Stavrogin's confession and the plan of The life of a great sinner, with introductory and explanatory notes. Translated by S. S. Koteliansky and Virginia Woolf.
By Dostoyevsky, Fyodor, 1821-1881.
From the Introduction:
The Russian Government has recently published a small paper-covered book containing Stavrogin's Confession, unpublished chapters of Dostoevsky's novel The Possessed, and Dostoevsky's plan or sketch of a novel which he never actually wrote but which he called The Life of a Great Sinner. The circumstances in which these MSS. were discovered are described in the note of the Russian Government which we give below. Our translation of Stavrogin's Confession and of the plan is from the text as published by the Russian Government. We have added translations of introductory or explanatory notes upon the two MSS. by V. Friche, V. Komarovich, and N. Brodsky. The notes by Friche and Komarovich are given in the book published by the Russian Government, that by M. Komarovich appeared 1922
Looks like an interesting project for some Dostoevsky or Virginia Woolf fan.
