THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV Father and Son's Rivalry Results in Death! A crime story and a philosophical debate of God, free-will and, morality. This book revolves around a murder mystery. It is an erotic rivalry in a triangle of love affairs between Fyodor Pavlorich Karamazov and his three sons- Dmitri, Ivan, and Alyosha. To some extent, it also involves his fourth son-Smerdyakov born of a retarded mute girl. The author portrays Fyodor as a rich, senseless, mean, and wicked person who had no respect for women and was always led by his loins. He never raised his sons who were born of his first and second wife. Dmitri was the son of the first wife. He is hot-headed and impulsive. He confronts his father about the inheritance that was left to him by his late mother. The two sons from the second wife were Ivan a cold but intellectual young man who was very philosophical, and Alyosha a kind and naïve young man of around twenty years. He is an apprentice at the monastery where he studies with Zosima a renowned aged elder. The authors take us through a conflict between Dmitri and his father where they get into a heated argument turned shouting match quarreling about both the inheritance and Grushenka-a beautiful girl they are both in love with. They are both trying to win the affection of this girl. Their rivalry accelerates to a point of Dmitri physically harming Fyodor. The author gives more details in the book on the following: Dmitri attack on Fyodor over Grushenka. The 'Grand Inquisitor' poem by Ivan. Grushenka's friendship with Alyosha. Dmitri is accused of Fyodor's murder. Smerdyakov's confession of murder and his suicide. Alyosha and the schoolboys. Katerina nurses Ivan after a nervous breakdown. Fyodor Dostoyevsky was born in Moscow on November 11, 1821. He was arrested for getting involved with the politically subversive 'Petrashevsky circle'. He lived in a convict prison in Omsk, Siberia. He died on February 9, 1881 in St Petersburg, Russia

The Brothers Karamazov Volume 2 By Fyodor Dostoyevsky Dostoyevsky's towering reputation as one of the handful of thinkers who forged the modern sensibility has sometimes obscured the purely novelistic virtues-brilliant characterizations, flair for suspense and melodrama, instinctive theatricality-that made his work so immensely popular in nineteenth-century Russia. The Brothers Karamazov, his 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.

It will make a wonderful addition to your library of classic literature! Excerpt: "Some of my readers may imagine that my young man was a sickly, ecstatic, poorly developed creature, a pale, consumptive dreamer. On the contrary, Alyosha was at this time a well-grown, red-cheeked, clear-eyed lad of nineteen, radiant with health. He was very handsome, too, graceful, moderately tall, with hair of a dark brown, with a regular, rather long, oval-shaped face, and wide-set dark gray, shining eyes; he was very thoughtful, and apparently very serene. I shall be told, perhaps, that red cheeks are not incompatible with fanaticism and mysticism; but I fancy that Alyosha was more of a realist than any one."

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (1821-1881) was a Russian novelist and writer of fiction whose works, including Crime and Punishment (1866) and The Brothers Karamazov (1880), have had a profound and lasting effect on intellectual thought and world literature. His literary output explores human psychology in the troubled political, social and spiritual context of 19th-century Russian society. Considered by many as a founder or precursor of 20th century existentialism, his Notes from Underground (1864), written in the embittered voice of the anonymous "underground man," was named by Walter Kaufmann as the "best overture for existentialism ever written. " His characters fall into a few distinct categories: humble and self-effacing Christians, self-destructive nihilists, and rebellious intellectuals; also, his characters are driven by ideas rather than by ordinary biological or social imperatives. His other works include: Poor Folk (1846), The Village of Stepanchikovo (1859), The Insulted and Humiliated (1861), The House of the Dead (1862), The Gambler (1867), The Idiot (1869), The Possessed (1872), The Raw Youth (1875) and A Writer's Diary (1873).

Dostoevsky's last and greatest novel, The Karamazov Brothers (1880) is both a brilliantly told crime story and a passionate philosophical debate. The dissolute landowner Fyodor Pavlovich Karamazov is murdered; his sons--the atheist intellectual Ivan, the hot-blooded Dmitry, and the saintly novice Alyosha--are all involved at some level. Brilliantly bound up with this psychological drama is Dostoevsky's intense and disturbing exploration of many deeply felt ideas about the existence of God, freedom of will, the collective nature of guilt, and the disastrous consequences of rationalism. Filled with eloquent voices, this new translation fully realizes the power and dramatic virtuosity of Dostoevsky's most brilliant work.
