The article is about Dostoyevsky's extraordinary talent to write about the inner life of the characters in their entirety of human experiences. His deep understanding of the hidden motives of the feelings and actions of another human helped him to create unforgettable stories and images of the characters in the novels.

 

The author draws attention to the concept of the writer's expressive tools that reveal and reinforce the abili­ty to use them in describing any psychological situations. At first they reflect the movements of the soul and after they emerged in the body's movements. It is emphasized that Dostoyevsky was a master of socio-psychological portrait in which human's individuality is visible. The portraits of Dostoyevsky's characters are often described against the background of nature landscapes that in line with the characters' mood and feelings. It confirms the existence of a strong connection between the internal and external human's worlds and nature around him.

 

Particular attention is paid to psychological studies of facial expressions of Dostoyevsky's heroes and their glances that highlighting the importance and the force of experienced feeling.

 

Thus, the purpose of this article is to analyze the ways of describing the spiritual life of a human in Dosto­yevsky's novels. In conclusion it is emphasized that in Dostoyevsky's novels the true feelings of the heroes are often expressed not only in words, but in wordless ways — in a smile, body movements or even in silence.
