The Brothers Karamazov
'In this new translation one finally gets the musical whole of Dostoevsky's original' New York Times Book Review
Dostoevsky's beautiful writing style and universal themes make this epic 19th century novel unmissable.
The Brothers Karamazov is a murder mystery, a courtroom drama, and an exploration of erotic rivalry in a series of triangular love affairs involving Karamazov and his three sons - the impulsive and sensual Dmitri; the coldly rational Ivan; and the healthy young novice Alyosha. Through the gripping events of their story, Dostoevsky portrays the social and spiritual strivings in what was both a golden age and a tragic turning point in Russian history.
