Albert Camus On Adapting Doystoyevsky For The Theatre
"Camus first read Dostoyevsky when he was 20 years old, and later called it a 'soul-shaking experience.' He was moved by the moral weight of Dostoyevsky's words. When the horrors of Stalin's purges came to light, Camus refused to look away. As he later said, 'The real 19th century prophet was Dostoyevsky, not Karl Marx.'" Open Culture 10/05/12
