Crime and punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )

43 editions published between 1914 and 2011 in English and held by 2,909 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 excruciating 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

40 editions published between 1953 and 1969 in 3 languages and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Notes from a dead house by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )

13 editions published between 1956 and 2008 in English and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this almost documentary account of his own experience of penal servitude in Serbia, Dostoevsky describes the physical and mental suffering of the convicts, the squalor and the degradation, in relentless detail. The intricate procedure whereby the men strip for the bath without removing their ten-pound leg-fetters is an extraordinary tour de force, compared by Turgenev to passages from Dante's Inferno." "Terror and resignation - the rampages of a psychopath, the brief serene interlude of Christmas Day - are evoked by Dostoevsky, writing several years after his release, with a strikingly uncharacteristic detachment. For this reason, House of the Dead is certainly the least Dostoevskian of his works, yet, paradoxically, it ranks among his greatest masterpieces."--Jacket
