The Fyodor Dostoevsky Collection (Half Price and Free UK Courier Delivery)
All books in the collection are new translations and contain extra material on Dostoevsky’s life and works, notes on the text and a select bibliography.
The Fyodor Dostoevsky Collection include:
Seen as Dostoevsky’s most powerful indictment of man’s propensity to violence, this darkly humorous work, shot through with grotesque comedy, is presented here in Roger Cockrell’s masterful new translation.
This new translation catches the verve and tumult of the original, which – in concept and execution – affords a refreshingly unfamiliar glimpse of the author.
Seen by many as the first existentialist novel and showcasing the best of Dostoevsky’s dry humour, Notes from Underground was a pivotal moment in the development of modern literature and has inspired countless novelists, thinkers and film-makers.
Both a Bildungsroman and a novel of ideas, dealing with themes such as the relationship between fathers and sons and the role of money in modern society, The Adolescent – here presented in a brand-new translation by Dora O’Brien – shows Dostoevsky at his finest as a social commentator and observer of the workings of a young man’s mind.
Introducing the first in a long line of underground characters, Poor People, Dostoevsky’s first full-length work of fiction, is a poignant, tragicomic tale which foreshadows the greatness of his later novels.
Presented in a new translation by Roger Cockrell, Uncle’s Dream shares very little of that novel’s gloomy tone and contains many elements of a light, drawing-room farce
The Double, Dostoevsky’s second published work of fiction, which foreshadows in its themes many of his mature novels, is the surreal and hallucinatory tale of an unfortunate anti-hero, at once chilling in its depiction of the dark sides of human nature and exuberantly comical.
Compelling, gripping, darkly humorous, The Eternal Husband – composed by the author at the peak of his writing powers, between The Idiot and Devils, and described by Dostoevsky’s biographer Joseph Frank as “a small masterpiece” – shows Dostoevsky at his best as a ruthless dissector of the quirks and foibles of the human character.
With an unforgettable cast of fellow gamblers and figures from European high society, this darkly comic novel of greed and self-destruction reveals Dostoevsky at his satirical and psychological best.
Based on Dostoevsky’s own autobiographical experiences of penal servitude in Siberia, this genre-defying novel is not only an unflinching exposé of the conditions faced by prisoners during the Tsarist period, but also a call to see the human side in criminals and rediscover the values of forgiveness and compassion.
Populated by an unforgettable cast of characters, from the beautiful, self-destructive Nastasya Filippovna to the dangerously obsessed Rogozhin and the radical student Ippolit, The Idiot is one of Dostoevsky’s most personal and intense works of fiction.
His record of the trip, Winter Notes on Summer Impressions – first published in the February 1863 issue of Vremya, the periodical he edited – is the chrysalis out of which many elements of his later masterpieces developed.
