Sergey Alexandrovich, the narrator, is summoned from St. Petersburg to the estate of his uncle, Colonel Yegor Ilyich Rostanev, and finds that a middle-aged charlatan named Foma Fomich Opiskin has swindled the nobles around him into believing that he is virtuous despite behavior that is passive-aggressive, selfish, and spiteful.
Foma obliges the servants to learn French, and gets furious when they are caught dancing the kamarinskaya. The Village of Stepanchikovo is an acrid farce written in the very rich and colourful language. Fyodor Dostoyevsky skillfully creates an exotic menagerie of characters… The picture of Foma, erudite and miserable, acting the part of a clown to a capricious and cruel master, filled my uncle’s heart with pity and indignation.
He was quick to attribute all that was outlandish and mean in the character of Foma Fomich to the suffering, humiliation and bitterness of former days. In his gentle and lofty The Village of Stepanchikovo is an acrid farce written in the very rich and colourful language. In his gentle and lofty-minded way he immediately concluded that the poor devil could not be held responsible for his behaviour and that he must not only pardon him but soothe and heal his wounds with tenderness and compassion, so as to reconcile him with humanity.
Having made up his mind on this point, he was carried away completely and proved utterly incapable of realizing that his newly found friend was nothing but a lascivious, capricious, selfish, indolent brute. In the genius and erudition of Foma Fomich he had supreme belief.
This was one of his principal, if quite harmless, foibles. No, not even a menagerie but some bizarre insectarium: While a whole assortment of freeloaders are nothing but bloodsucking bedbugs, fleas and mosquitoes. But what use is my forgiveness to you? Well, supposing I do forgive you: And anyway — you have shown me the door! But how can we be equals from now on? Can you understand that I have, as it were, crushed you with my nobility of spirit, that you have indeed crushed yourself by your despicable behaviour?
You have been crushed, and I have been exalted.
So how can there be talk of equality? And how can there be friendship without equality? I say this with a bleeding heart and not, as you may perhaps suspect, to exult and elevate myself above you in triumph. Stupidity and vainglory are capable to turn human beings into the creatures that are stranger than those in any fables. View all 3 comments.

I picked it out of my shelf and began reading the back cover, in order to refresh my memory—only to realize that I had not read it yet! I must have confused it with Uncle’s Dream ; I probably thought that it was a different translation, since both are about uncles in villages. Anyway, I found a read rather than a re-read, which was wonderful. I really thought I ha I was going through my Dostoevsky collection looking for one of his works to re-read, when I came across The Village of Stepanchikovo.
I really thought I had read all of Dostoevsky’s think. I hope I make similar discoveries in the future although I am sure that there are no more unread pieces hiding in my shelves. Anyway, in The Village Dostoevsky really pushes the reader that is: Having said that, in the uncle lies the rudiment of what would later become Prince Myshkin, one of Dostoevsky’s—and one of literature’s—greatest characters.
So, overall, while the story wasn’t especially great, parts of the writing and the storytelling were very good; and it was interesting to compare some of the characters and concerns with those found in his other works. Also very interesting and, I admit, somewhat unexpected was the lampooning of Gogol.

Apparently, even those from under whose overcoat you come may be subjected to vehement criticism in this case, it must be said, rightfully so. Foma Fomich Opiskin, who embodies some of Gogol’s follies and questionable beliefs near the end of his life, is a fascinating figure of evil—a foreshadowing of oumarbaz Dostoevskian villains to come.

From BBC radio 4 Extra: First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in When Fyodor Dostoyevsky returned from his exile in Siberia, he was careful to avoid writing anything that would upset the Tsarist censors. It was during this period that he wrote Uncle’s Dream and The Village of Stepanchikovo — both of them comedies about the feckless provincial nobility of Russia.
Of the two, Stepanchikovo is the better. It deals with a youthful nephw visiting his widowed uncle in the provinces. He arrives into a regular snake pit. His mother has moved in with him, along with a When Fyodor Dostoyevsky returned from his exile in Siberia, he was careful to avoid writing dotsoevsky that would upset the Tsarist censors.
His mother has moved in with him, along with a large group of toadies, the worst of which is Foma Fomich Opiskin, one of the author’s more memorable characters.
It is as if Foma Fomich owned the estate. The mother and her toadies adore him. Many of the males, however, either despise him or at best tolerate him. Just when we expect that Dostoyevsky would find some suitable fate for the sponger, he pulls a switch on us, the readers.
The uncle is in love with the governess, Nastenka, and wishes to marry her. After one of his worst scenes, during which he leaves the household in a frightful electrical storm, he returns to give his blessing to the marriage and makes everyone happy, and also cementing his position in the household.
