The Karamazov Brothers (Oxford World's Classics)

Fyodor Dostoyevsky


Translated through Ignat Avsey

Dostoevsky's final and maximum novel, The Karamazov Brothers (1880) is either a brilliantly informed crime tale and a passionate philosophical debate. The dissolute landowner Fyodor Pavlovich Karamazov is murdered; his sons--the atheist highbrow Ivan, the hot-blooded Dmitry, and the saintly amateur Alyosha--are all concerned at a few point. Brilliantly certain up with this mental drama is Dostoevsky's severe and anxious exploration of many deeply felt rules in regards to the life of God, freedom of will, the collective nature of guilt, and the disastrous effects of rationalism. jam-packed with eloquent voices, this new translation totally realizes the facility and dramatic virtuosity of Dostoevsky's such a lot excellent work.
