Brief biography of these three writers. Zweig tries to study the general lines of their works, making a psychological profile both of the authors and their main characters. The authors' biographical details are of little interest, only insofar they can help to explain their books. Of these three writers, he dedicates attention to Dostoevsky in particular, making an in-depth analysis of the man and his work.
