Universal Dostoevsky 

Patrick Wise earned first place in the annual Dostoevsky Games when he was a student. The contest is held among the leading universities in North Carolina, which is among the main centers in the US for studying Dostoevsky. During the Games, Dostoevsky’s novels are given new, modern interpretations: rap, allusions, and video. The contest proves how two-century-old books are still in sync with reality and resonate with people around the globe. Artists from Europe, Asia, and America inspired by Dostoevsky transform his novels into plays, pieces of art, and performances. At the same time, Dostoevsky’s fans confess that reading him makes them want to “better themselves.” What’s his secret?
