In der russischen Literatur griff eine Vielzahl von Wissenschaftlern und Schriftstellern die Thematik des “geborenen Verbrechers” auf und versuchte entweder die Theorien von Lombroso zu stärken oder diese zu negieren. So etwa Lev Tolstoj, der in seinem Roman “Voskresenie” (1899) Lombrosos Theorien über den “geborenen Verbrecher” zu widerlegen suchte. Weitere Autoren, wie etwa A. Svirskij oder V. Giljarovskij, setzten sich in ihren literarischen Werken ebenfalls mit der Thematik des “geborenen Verbrechers” auseinander, indem sie die Thematik der Verbrecherräume bzw. Elendsviertel und deren Bewohner aufgriffen und ausführlich behandelt haben.
