Raskolnikov commits murder. He then must deal both with the police, and his own guilty conscience. Determined to overreach his humanity and assert his untrammelled individual will, Raskolnikov, an impoverished student living in the St. Petersburg of the Tsars, commits an act of murder and theft and sets into motion a story which, for its excrutiating suspense, its atmospheric vividness, and its profundity of characterization and vision, is almost unequaled in the literatures of the world. The best known of Dostoevsky's masterpieces, Crime and Punishment can bear any amount of rereading without losing a drop of its power over our imagination

When a young graduate returns home he is accompanied, much to his father and uncle's discomfort, by a strange friend "who doesn't acknowledge any authorities, who doesn't accept a single principle on faith." Turgenev's masterpiece of generational conflict shocked Russian society when it was published in 1862 and continues today to seem as fresh and outspoken as it did to those who first encountered its nihilistic hero

The possessed by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )

44 editions published between 1913 and 2017 in English and held by 2,175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a true event, in which a young revolutionary was murdered by his comrades, The Possessed provoked a storm of controversy for its harsh depiction of a ruthless band of Russian intellectuals, atheists, socialists, anarchists, and other radicals who attempt to incite the population of a small provincial town to revolt against the government. In contrast to Dostoevsky's savage portrait of these radicals and the violent ideas that have possessed them like demons, the author expresses great sympathy for workers and other ordinary people ill-served by those who presume to speak in their name
The kingdom of God is within you : Christianity not as a mystic religion but as a new theory of life by Leo Tolstoy( )

47 editions published between 1894 and 2014 in English and held by 1,780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally banned in Tolstoy?s home country of Russia, "The Kingdom of God is Within You" is a summation of three decades of religious and political thinking. Taking its title from Luke 17:21, the book outlines Tolstoy?s principles of non-violent resistance and simple living based on a literal interpretation of the teachings of Jesus. Tolstoy believed that the institutions of Orthodox Russian Christianity had become nothing more than an appendage of the Russian Empire. Tolstoy takes the admonition to "turn the other cheek" seriously and refutes millennia of Christian justifications for state-sponsored violence. Tolstoy?s theories of nonviolent resistance would go on to inspire such 20th-century activists as Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr

Dostoyevsky was epileptic. 'White nights' is the term that he used to describe the experience - part ecstatic, part torture - of his epileptic fits.-- N. Ward "Twelve of the Fifty-One Shocks of Antonin Artaud, New Theatre Quarterly, 1999, vol. 15, p. 127
The gambler, Bobok [and] A nasty story by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )

"In this short novel, Fyodor Dostoevsky tells the story of Alexey Ivanovitch, a young tutor working in the household of an imperious Russian general. Alexey tries to break through the wall of the established order in Russia, but instead becomes mired in the endless downward spiral of betting and loss. His intense and inescapable addiction is accentuated by his affair with the General's cruel yet seductive niece, Polina. In The Gambler, Dostoevsky reaches the heights of drama with this psychological portrait."--Jacket
Notes from a dead house by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )

"Arrested in 1849 for belonging to a secret group of radical utopians, Fyodor Dostoevsky was sentenced to four years in a Siberian labor camp--a terrible mental, spiritual, and physical ordeal that inspired him to write The House of the Dead. Told from the point of view of a fictitious narrator--a convict serving a ten year sentence for murdering his wife--The House of the Dead describes in vivid detail the horrors that Dostoevsky himself witnessed while in prison: the brutality of the guards who relished cruelty for its own sake; the evil of criminals who enjoy murdering children; and the existence of decent souls amid filth and degradation. Also included in this volume is Dostoevsky's first published work, Poor Folk, a novel written in the form of letters that brought Dostoevsky immediate critical and public recognition."--Cover

His close friends - Marx, Wagner, Mill, Bakunin, Garibaldi, Kropotkin - are brought pungently, brilliantly alive
