about this item

Fiódor Pávlovich Karamázov, un terrateniente borracho, arbitrario y corrompido, tiene cuatro hijos: Dmitri, de carácter violento; Iván, un intelectual frío y materialista; Aliosha, el hijo pequeño, pasivo y religioso; y Smerdiakov, el hijo bastardo y resentido. La novela gira en torno a las relaciones perversas que se establecen entre el padre y los hijos hasta que éste es asesinado y su presunto asesino, Dmitri, juzgado y condenado. Odio, amor, crueldad, compasión, sentimientos radicalmente contrarios y enfrentados...La presente edición de una de las obras más importantes de la literatura universal cuenta con la célebre traducción de José Laín Entralgo. Asimismo, viene acompañada de una introducción de David McDuff, traductor y crítico literario especialista en la obra del autor.«Siempre me parece que cuando entro en algún sitio soy el más miserable de todos y que todos me toman por un bufón: haré, pues, el bufón, porque todos vosotros, hasta el último, sois más estúpidos y miserables que yo.»ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONFyodor Dostoyevsky's powerful meditation on faith, meaning and morality, The Brothers Karamazov with an introduction and notes by David McDuff in Penguin Classics. When brutal landowner Fyodor Karamazov is murdered, the lives of his sons are changed irrevocably: Mitya, the sensualist, whose bitter rivalry with his father immediately places him under suspicion for parricide; Ivan, the intellectual, whose mental tortures drive him to breakdown; the spiritual Alyosha, who tries to heal the family's rifts; and the shadowy figure of their ****** half-brother Smerdyakov. As the ensuing investigation and trial reveal the true identity of the murderer, Dostoyevsky's dark masterpiece evokes a world where the lines between innocence and corruption, good and evil, blur and everyone's faith in humanity is tested. This powerful translation of The Brothers Karamazov features and introduction highlighting Dostoyevsky's recurrent themes of guilt and salvation, with a new chronology and further reading. 'There is no writer who better demonstrates the contradictions and fluctuations of the creative mind than Dostoyevsky, and nowhere more astonishingly than in The Brothers Karamazov' Joyce Carol Oates 'Dostoyevsky was the only psychologist from whom I had anything to learn: he belongs to the happiest windfalls of my life' Friedrich Nietzsche 'The most magnificent novel ever written' Sigmund Freud
