    20. Bk XII & Epilogue (Dostoyevsky)

    20. Bk XII & Epilogue (Dostoyevsky)

    This is our last conversation about the book.  Lots of people hate how the book ends - but I (Jaeger) think it is one of the most Beautiful (in the transcendental way) endings imaginable to one of the best novels ever written.  You can only understanding the ending if you go back to the beginning, the "From the Author" note.

    Next time we will begin reading/discussing the work of the Church Father, St. Gregory of Nyssa.
