After being acclaimed as Russia's "most scathing fictional treatment of destructive tendencies in the [Bolshevik] revolutionary movement" for its not-so-veiled critique of anarchist Bakunin, Doestoevsky's Demons (1873) went out of favor and print in the Stalin era. It reemerged in the late perestroika and post-Soviet era as one of the author's most publicized and popular works. Goodwin (Russian studies, U. of Florida) explains the reasons for the peaks and valleys in the publication and regard for this novel, in which the author said he sacrificed aesthetic to polemical aims, and its reception as either reactionary or prescient.
