Poor Folk, Dostoyevsky's first great literary triumph, inspired by the works of Gogol, Pushkin, and Karamzin as well as English and French authors, is written in the form of letters between the two main characters, Makar Devushkin and Varvara Dobroselova, who are poor second cousins. The novel showcases the life of poor people, their relationship with rich people, and poverty in general, all common themes of literary naturalism.
