Catalogue Note

first edition. "No writer has been more important to the understanding and/or reception of Russian literature in the West than Fedor Dostoevsky" (The Cambridge Companion to Modern Russian Culture, p.184). This is one of Dostoevsky's four masterpieces, all of which deal with murder, and in this specific case with the problems of faith and of evil as well.
