‘Will I really – I mean, really – actually take an axe, start bashing her on the head, smash her skull to pieces?”
Oliver Ready presents his brilliant, modern translation of Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky’s masterpiece. A Times Literary Supplement Book of the Year 2014.
‘a five-star hit, which will make you see the original with new eyes’ A. N. Wilson
Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky was born in Moscow in 1821. His novella Poor Folk made his name. In 1849 he was arrested for involvement with the politically subversive ‘Petrashevsky circle’ and until 1854 lived in a convict prison in Siberia. From this experience came The House of the Dead. In 1864, Dostoyevsky completed Notes from Underground and began Crime and Punishment. The major novels of his late period are The Idiot, Demons and The Brothers Karamazov.
Oliver Ready is Research Fellow in Russian Society and Culture at St Antony’s College, Oxford. He is general editor of the anthology The Ties of Blood: Russian Literature from the 21st Century (2008) and Consultant Editor for Russia, Central and Eastern Europe at the Times Literary Supplement.
