The Brothers Karamazov is a philosophical and psychological novel written by Fyodor Dostoevsky and originally published in 1880, being the last novel published by the writer.

Set in 19th century Russia, the novel deals with ethical debates about the figure of God, free will or morality, presenting a series of moral struggles in the midst of a modernizing Russia.

The novel narrates the murder case of old Karamazov, father of four neglected children, and all the related criminal process.

The first suspicions point to Dmitri, the only son from his father's first marriage, since everything points to him being the murderer motivated by jealousy. He will be helped by his brothers the days before the trial to defend his innocence.

The novel has great psychological ambiguity and not only develops its own characters, but is a masterful reflection of the Russian society of the time. The characters act to the moral and psychological limit and the story delves into the concept of evil and its nature.

This digital edition of the book The Brothers Karamazov is based on Constance Garnett's translation.

The best The Brothers Karamazov quotes

People talk sometimes of bestial cruelty, but that’s a great injustice and insult to the beasts; a beast can never be so cruel as man, so artistically cruel.


Man is broad, too broad. I’d have him narrower.


What is the use of Christ's words, unless we set an example?


As a general rule, people, even the wicked, are much more naïve and simple-hearted than we suppose. And we ourselves are, too.


This is something about which You were right. For the mystery of human existence lies not in just staying alive, but in finding something to live for. Without a concrete idea of what he is living for, man would refuse to live, would rather exterminate himself than remain on this earth, even if bread were scattered all around him.
