Vladimir is so engaging, charming, passionate about his subject, so anxious to share his incredible understanding of all aspects of Dostoyevsky, his times, his influences, his writing, his philosophy etc. His talks inspire further interest in Russia, it's arts, history, etc.

Vladimir gave a great presentation that inspired me to read Crime and Punishment as I plow my way through classic foreign literature during SIP because of COVID
An excellent explanation of the underlying symbolism, themes, and settings of "Crime and Punishment" as well as a brief biography of its author.
Excellent information, not just about the books but about the setting in St. Petersburg. Lecturer enthusiastic and clear has expert knowledge. Would have liked a little more info on the story itself.
