The Brothers Karamazov

The Brothers Karamazov Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1880 Dostoevsky completed The Brothers Karamazov, the literary effort for which he had been preparing all his life. Compelling, profound, complex, it is the story of a patricide and of the four sons who each had a motive for murder: Dmitry, the sensualist, Ivan, the intellectual; Alyosha, the mystic; and twisted, cunning Smerdyakov, the bastard child. Frequently lurid, nightmarish, always brilliant, the novel plunges the reader into a sordid love triangle, a pathological obsession, and a gripping courtroom drama. But throughout the whole, Dostoevsky searhes for the truth--about man, about life, about the existence of God. A terrifying answer to man's eternal questions, this monumental work remains the crowning achievement of perhaps the finest novelist of all time.

Synopsis:

The violent lives of four sons--Dmitry, the sensualist; Ivan, the intellectual; Alyosha, the mystic; and Smerdyakov, the bastard--are exposed when their father is murdered and each one attempts to come to terms with his own guilt. Reissue.

Synopsis:

A remarkable work showing the author's power to depict Russian character and his understanding of human nature.

About the Author

Fyodor Dostoevsky's life was as dark and dramatic as the great novels he wrote. He was born in Moscow in 1821, and when he died in 1881, he left a legacy of masterworks that influenced the great thinkers and writers of the Western world and immortalized him as a giant among writers of world literature.
