The Brothers Karamazov (Signet Classics) Mass Market Paperback
by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Edition Date:: 12/04/2007
This extraordinary novel, Dostoyevsky’s last and greatest work, tells the dramatic story of four brothers—Dmitri, pleasure-seeking, impatient, unruly . . . Ivan, brilliant and morose . . . Alyosha, gentle, loving, honest . . . and the illegitimate Smerdyakov, sly, silent, cruel. Driven by intense passion, they become involved in the brutal murder of their own father, one of the most loathsome characters in all literature. Featuring the famous chapter, “The Grand Inquisitor,” Dostoyevsky’s final masterpiece is at once a complex character study, a riveting murder mystery, and a fascinating examination of man’s morality and the question of God’s existence.
About the Author

“Dostoyevsky paints like Rembrandt, and his portraits are artistically so powerful and often so perfect that even if they lacked the depths of thought that lie behind them and around them, I believe that Dostoyevsky would still be the greatest of all novelists.”—André Gide
