This paper aims to identify Dostoevskian themes and references in the novel Maudit soit Dostoïevski by the Afghan writer Atiq Rahimi. The novel is set in Afghanistan, materially and culturally destroyed by the civil war broken out after the withdrawal of the Soviet army. The plot and plurality of voices embodied by the main character (and narrator) present interesting references and quotations from Crime and Punishment in Rahimi’s novel.
