Summary

The award-winning translators Richard Pevear & Larissa Volokhonsky continue their acclaimed series of Dostoevsky translations with this novel, also known as The Possessed. Inspired by the true story of a political murder that horrified Russians in 1869, Demons was conceived by Dostoevsky as a ''novel-pamphlet'' in which he would say everything about the plague of materialist ideology that he saw infecting his native land. What emerged was a prophetic & ferociously funny masterpiece of ideology & murder in prerevolutionary Russia--a novel that is rivaled only by The Brothers Karamazov as Dostoevsky's greatest.
