9780140445275: The Brothers Karamazov (Penguin Classics)

The Brothers Karamazov, Dostoevsky's crowning achievement, is a tale of patricide and family rivalry that embodies the moral and spiritual dissolution of an entire society (Russia in the 1870s). It created a national furor comparable only to the excitement stirred by the publication, in 1866, of Crime and Punishment. To Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov captured the quintessence of Russian character in all its exaltation, compassion, and profligacy. Significantly, the book was on Tolstoy's bedside table when he died. Readers in every language have since accepted Dostoevsky's own evaluation of this work and have gone further by proclaiming it one of the few great novels of all ages and countries.

About the Author:

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky was born in Moscow in 1821. Between 1849 & 1854 he lived in a convict prison, and in later years his passion for gambling led him deeply into debt. He died in 1881. He is also the author of Crime & Punishment, The Idiot and The Devils. David McDuff has translated a number of 19th-century Russian prose works for Penguin Classics.
