Four brothers reunite in their hometown in Russia. The oldest, Dimitri, has just returned from a stint in the military, and he wants to claim an inheritance from his mother that is being held in his father's hands. Dimitri and his father argue and call two other brothers, Ivan and Alyosha, to resolve the fight. The fourth brother, Smerdyakov, is an illegitimate child who suffers from epileptic seizures. He is relegated to servitude in the father's house but enjoys discussing philosophy with Ivan. The murder of their father forces the brothers to question their beliefs about each other, religion, and morality. Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky first published his dynastic novel in serial form from 1879 to 1880. This unabridged version is taken from the 1912 translation by Constance Garnett.

Table of Contents: Crime and Punishment The Brother's Karamazov The Idiot Notes from Underground The Gambler Demons (The Possessed / The Devil Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881) was a Russian novelist and short-story writer. His writing is steeped in deep psychology and the exploration of human nature, while it also accurately depicts the Russian reality of his times. Dostoyevsky is usually regarded as one of the finest novelists who ever lived. In his time he was also renowned for his activity as a journalist. Each of Dostoevsky´s works is famous for its psychological profundity, and, indeed, Dostoyevsky is commonly regarded as one of the greatest psychologists in the history of literature. He specialized in the analysis of pathological states of mind that lead to insanity, murder, and suicide and in the exploration of the emotions of humiliation, self-destruction, tyrannical domination, and murderous rage. These major works are also renowned as great “novels of ideas” that treat timeless and timely issues in philosophy and politics. Psychology and philosophy are closely linked in Dostoyevsky’s portrayals of intellectuals, who “feel ideas” in the depths of their souls.
