Walker Percy, Fyodor Dostoevsky, and the Search for Influence

In Walker Percy, Fyodor Dostoevsky, and the Search for Influence, Jessica Hooten Wilson studies the career of Walker Percy--his adaptations of Dostoevsky's motifs and overall influence by the great Russian writer. This book undermines long-held assumptions about artistic originality by focusing on the Christian way in which Walker Percy modeled his fiction after the novels of Fyodor Dostoevsky. Only by studying the good that came before can one translate it in a new voice for the here and now.

About the Author

Jessica Hooten Wilson is Associate Professor of Literature at John Brown University and author of Giving the Devil His Due: Demonic Authority in the Fiction of Flannery O'Connor and Fyodor Dostoevsky (2017).


"Walker Percy, Fyodor Dostoevsky, and the Search for Influence is a significant work that has the potential to reenergize the field of influence studies because it shows how two of the most influential models in the field--Harold Bloom's high-Romantic 'anxiety of influence, ' on the one hand, and poststructuralist accounts of 'intertextuality, ' on the other--fail to provide much illumination of many great works that do not subscribe to the mythologies of the strong poet or of language itself as the supreme reality." --Thomas Haddox, author of Hard Sayings: The Rhetoric of Christian Orthodoxy in Late Modern Fiction (OSU Press, 2013)
