The Brothers Karamazov, Dostoevskys last and greatest novel, published just before his death in 1881, chronicles the bitter love-hate struggle between the outsized Fyodor Karamazov and his three very different sons. It is above all the story of a murder, told with hair-raising intellectual clarity and a feeling for the human condition unsurpassed in world literature.

Dostoevskys towering reputation as one of the handful of thinkers who forged the modern sensibility has sometimes obscured the purely novelistic virtuesbrilliant characterizations, flair for suspense and melodrama, instinctive theatricalitythat made his work so immensely popular in nineteenth-century Russia.

This award-winning translation by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonskythe definitive version in Englishmagnificently captures the rich and subtle energies of Dostoevskys masterpiece.
