The Brothers Karamazov, Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s final novel, is ostensibly a murder mystery. In truth, it is a case study of human behavior in times of crisis, both elemental and existential. Social inequities, cultural norms, religious ambiguity, economic inequalities, and political unrest compete in 19th century Russia as reflected in the lives of the Karamazov family and those linked to them. This significant book deserves intensive analysis. Therefore, we will discuss the first half, approximately 400 pages, during the fall 2021 semester and the second half during the spring 2022 semester. Discussions, which will be rigorous, will focus on matters such as values, beliefs, motivations, internal and external conflicts, and self-realization. All participants should be very familiar with the novel, having read it recently. Participants are required to have the paperback edition. Our text will be The Brothers Karamazov, Fyodor Dostoyevsky translated by Constance Garnett (Digireads.com, 2019, ISBN-10 : 1420961284). Participation in both semesters is not required.
