While he was out of Russia, he wrote The Idiot (1868) and The Eternal Husband (1870) and began The Possessed. Back in St. Petersburg, he completed this tale, which attacked the embryonic Russian revolutionary movement. HE also composed the novels A Raw Youth (1875) and The Brothers Karamazov (1879-1880), his crowning achievement.

In his last years he took time off from the writing of fiction to start work on his memoirs. He commented on current events and his opinions on a wide variety of topics, including the virtues of Russian folklore and Russia’s messianic destiny. He contributed these to a conservative weekly which he edited in 1873.
