Abstract: Two nineteenth Slavic writers, Joseph Conrad and Fyodor Dostoyevsky, suffered intense personal experiences of exile; the former endured seven childhood years in Russian exile with his Polish parents because of their revolutionary activities against the czar, and the latter spent ten years in Siberian exile for his involvement in anti-government subversion. As a result of their experiences, exile emerges as a central theme in much of their fiction.
