As the largest of Dostoevsky’s works and his last novel before he died, The Brothers Karamazov is remembered as his magnum opus. In this philsophical masterwork, Dostoevsky tells the story of the three Karamazov brothers—the monastic novice Alyosha, the unbeliever Ivan, and the soldier Dmitri. The spiritual drama that unfolds encompasses philosophical and spiritual issues in a sweeping spectrum, breaking into morality and free will, tradition and progress, and faith and doubt. In no time, this masterwork was accalaimed a masterpeice in world literature, and has had major influence over other authors and philosophers, including Franz Kafka, Albert Einstein, Cormac McCarthy, Martin Heidegger, Kurt Vonnegut, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Ernest Hemingway.

“An elder was one who took your soul, your will, into his soul and his will. When you choose an elder, you renounce your own will and yield it to him in complete submission, complete self-abnegation. This novitiate, this terrible school of abnegation, is undertaken voluntarily, in the hope of self-conquest, of self-mastery, in order, after a life of obedience, to attain perfect freedom, that is, from self; to escape the lot of those who have lived their whole life without finding their true selves in themselves.” (Page 24)
