Its nameless hero is a profoundly alienated individual in whose brooding self-analysis there is a search for the true and the good in a world of relative values and few absolutes. Moreover, the novel introduces themes &; moral, religious, political and social &; that dominated Dostoyevsky's later works. Notes from the Underground, then, aside from its own...

Boek cover Anna Karenina van Leo Tolstoy (Paperback)
Translated by Louise and Aylmer Maude. Introduction and Notes by E.B. Greenwood, University of Kent. Anna Karenina is one of the most loved and memorable heroines of literature.

It ends tragically, and there is much that evokes despair, yet set beside this is an abounding joy in...

With selected excerpts from the Notebooks for Crime and Punishment
Translated by Constance Garnett with an Introduction and Notes by Dr Keith Carabine, University of Kent at Canterbury. Crime and Punishment is one of the greatest and most readable novels ever written. From the beginning we are locked into the frenzied consciousness of Raskolnikov who, against his better instincts, is inexorably drawn to commit a brutal double murder. From that moment on, we share his conflicting feelings of self-loathing and pride, of contempt for and need of others, and of terrible despair and hope of redemption: and, in a remarkable transformation of the detective novel,...

Boek cover Notes From Underground & Other Stories van Fyodor Dostoevsky (Paperback)
With an Introduction and Notes by David Rampton, Department of English, University of Ottowa. Notes from Underground and Other Stories is a comprehensive collection of Dostoevsky's short fiction.

In Notes from Underground, the Underground Man...
