The Brothers Karamazov, Fyodor Dostoevsky

Generally considered Dostoevsky's masterpiece, this novel, published in 1880, was his final literary work. The lives of Fyodor Karamazov and his three adult sons form a complex web of love, hate, jealousy, guilt, and eventually murder. Against this intense and often sordid background, the novel masterfully presents Russian life in the nineteenth century and explores the theme of what constitutes true faith.
