Fyodor Dostoyevsky: The Brothers Karamazov (Landmarks of World Literature)

by

Fyodor Dostoyevsky: The Brothers Karamazov (Landmarks of World Literature) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Brothers Karamazov, completed in November 1880 just two months before Dostoyevsky's death, displays both his mastery as a storyteller and his significance as a thinker. In this volume, Dr. Leatherbarrow shows that far from being merely a philosophical religious tract, The Brothers Karamazov is an enjoyable and accessible novel. He discusses its major themes, including atheism and belief, the nature of man, socialism and individualism, and the state of European civilization, focusing particulary on those themes of justice, order and disorder, in whose revolutionary treatment he sees the real significance of this literary landmark.

Synopsis:

This book is part of a series that provides concise and lucid introduction into Dostoyevsky.
