Winner of the Pen/Book-of-the-Month Club Translation Prize The Brothers Karamasov is a murder mystery, a courtroom drama, and an exploration of erotic rivalry in a series of triangular love affairs involving the “wicked and sentimental” Fyodor Pavlovich Karamazov and his three sons—the impulsive and sensual Dmitri; the coldly rational Ivan; and the healthy, red-cheeked young novice Alyosha. Through the gripping events of their story, Dostoevsky portrays the whole of Russian life, is social and spiritual striving, in what was both the golden age and a tragic turning point in Russian culture. This award-winning translation by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky remains true to the verbal inventiveness of Dostoevsky’s prose, preserving the multiple voices, the humor, and the surprising modernity of the original. It is an achievement worthy of Dostoevsky’s last and greatest novel.

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. About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

The Insulted and Injured

Author: Fyodor Dostoevsky,Boris Jakim

Publisher: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing

"The Insulted and Injured, which came out in 1861, was Fyodor Dostoevsky's first major work of fiction after his Siberian exile and the first of the long novels that made him famous. Set in nineteenth-century Petersburg, this gripping novel features a vividly drawn set of characters - including Vanya (Dostoevsky's semi-autobiographical hero), Natasha (the woman he loves), and Alyosha (Natasha's aristocratic lover) - all suffering from the cruelly selfish machinations of Alyosha's father, the dark and powerful Prince Valkovsky. Boris Jakim's fresh English-language rendering of this gem in the Doestoevsky canon is both more colorful and more accurate than any earlier translation." --from back cover.

Ein fesselnder, erschütternder Roman über zwei junge Brüder und ihren zugleich liebevollen und übergriffigen Vater – Daniel Magariels Buch ist das verblüffende Debüt eines neuen, großen Talents. Die drei – ein zwölfjähriger Junge, sein älterer Bruder und ihr Vater – haben den „Krieg“ gewonnen: So nennt der Vater seine bittere Scheidung und den Kampf ums Sorgerecht. Sie verlassen Kansas und fahren nach Albuquerque, um noch einmal neu zu beginnen. Die Jungen gehen zur Schule, spielen Basketball, finden Freunde. Ihr Vater arbeitet von Zuhause aus. Bald aber wachsen sich kleine Fehltritte des Vaters zu einer finsteren Irritation aus, müssen die Jungen erkennen, dass sich ihr Vater verändert, unberechenbar wird, mitunter brutal. Vor der kargerhabenen Kulisse der Landschaft New Mexicos erzählt Magariel mit bestechender Klarheit, wie die Jungen verzweifelt versuchen, die Familie zusammenzuhalten, sich gegenseitig schützen und helfen, und schließlich ums eigene Überleben kämpfen. „Einer von uns“ ist eine kurze Geschichte mit gewaltiger emotionaler Wucht.
