Ivan Turgenev's Fathers and Sons, considered to be one of the author's greatest literary achievements, is a novel about the clash of ideologies of two generations.

The possessed by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )

27 editions published between 1913 and 2017 in English and held by 1,964 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

War and peace : a novel by Leo Tolstoy( Book )

23 editions published between 1900 and 1973 in English and held by 1,207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic Wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy's genius is seen clearly in the multitude of fully realized and equally memorable characters that populate this massive chronicle. Out of this complex narrative emerges a profound examination of the individual's place in the historical process, one that makes it clear why Thomas Mann praised Tolstoy for his Homeric powers and placed War and Peace in the same category as the Iliad: "To read him ... is to find one's way home ... to everything within us that is fundamental and sane."
The gambler, Bobok [and] A nasty story by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )

45 editions published between 1914 and 2015 in English and held by 1,133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 )

54 editions published between 1861 and 2010 in English and Russian and held by 1,115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
