In June 1862, Dostoevsky left Petersburg on his first excursion to Western Europe. Ostensibly making the trip to consult Western specialists about his epilepsy, he also wished to see firsthand the source of the Western ideas he believed were corrupting Russia. Over the course of his journey he visited a number of major cities, including Berlin, Paris, London, Florence, Milan, and Vienna. His impressions on what he saw, Winter Notes on Summer Impressions , were first published in the February 1863 issue of Vremya (Time), the periodical he edited.

Reviews for Winter Notes on Summer Impressions: New Translation

Important as an early statement of some of Dostoevsky's favourite concepts, and interesting as an example of his acid journalistic style. - The New York Review of Books
