Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

An acclaimed new translation of the classic Russian novel.
Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Review

“The best [translation of Crime and Punishment] currently available…An especially faithful re-creation…with a coiled-spring kinetic energy…Don’t miss it.” –Washington Post Book World

“This fresh, new translation…provides a more exact, idiomatic, and contemporary rendition of the novel that brings Fyodor Dostoevsky’s tale achingly alive…It succeeds beautifully.” –
San Francisco Chronicle

“Reaches as close to Dostoevsky’s Russian as is possible in English…The original’s force and frightening immediacy is captured…The Pevear and Volokhonsky translation will become the standard English version.”–
Chicago Tribune
Always the perfect gift

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky (/ˌdɒstəˈjɛfski, ˌdʌs-/; Russian: Фёдор Миха́йлович Достое́вский; IPA: [ˈfʲɵdər mʲɪˈxajləvʲɪtɕ dəstɐˈjɛfskʲɪj]; 11 November 1821 – 9 February 1881), sometimes transliterated Dostoevsky, was a Russian novelist, short story writer, essayist, journalist and philosopher. Dostoyevsky's literary works explore human psychology in the troubled political, social, and spiritual atmosphere of 19th-century Russia. Many of his works are marked by a preoccupation with Christianity, explored through the prism of the individual confronted with life's hardships and beauty.

He began writing in his 20s, and his first novel, Poor Folk, was published in 1846 when he was 25. His major works include Crime and Punishment (1866), The Idiot (1869), Demons (1872) and The Brothers Karamazov (1880). His output consists of 11 novels, three novellas, 17 short novels and numerous other works. Many literary critics rate him as one of the greatest psychologists in world literature. His 1864 novella Notes from Underground is considered to be one of the first works of existentialist literature.

Born in Moscow in 1821, Dostoyevsky was introduced to literature at an early age through fairy tales and legends, and through books by Russian and foreign authors. His mother died in 1837, when he was 15, and around the same time he left school to enter the Nikolayev Military Engineering Institute. After graduating, he worked as an engineer and briefly enjoyed a lavish lifestyle, translating books to earn extra money. In the mid-1840s he wrote his first novel, Poor Folk, which gained him entry into St. Petersburg's literary circles.

In the following years, Dostoyevsky worked as a journalist, publishing and editing several magazines of his own and later A Writer's Diary, a collection of his writings. He began to travel around western Europe and developed a gambling addiction, which led to financial hardship. For a time, he had to beg for money, but he eventually became one of the most widely read and highly regarded Russian writers. His books have been translated into more than 170 languages. Dostoyevsky influenced a multitude of writers and philosophers, from Anton Chekhov and Ernest Hemingway to Friedrich Nietzsche and Jean-Paul Sartre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great quality print, packaging. Pevear translation: easy to understand. Could’ve been less literal.
Reviewed in Canada 🇨🇦 on September 1, 2020
Physical quality review:
I got the paperback version of Pevear translation. Great quality and fast delivery within two days. I was surprised by the thickness and weight of the book. I find it a bit hard to hold up while reading but it’s probably because I’m not all that strong. The cover has a matte finish with a sandy texture which I like. The paper inside feels really smooth. The font is quite on the smaller side but not too small. I prefer a less bold font but this fine. It’s readable. The pages are easy to open flat with force, but I still have to hold it open since I don’t want to crease it.

Content review:
Pevear’s translation seems a bit too literal for my liking when compared to the Garnette translation. Whereas Garnette’s translation can sometimes be A little difficult to understand. But that is just me being nit picky. I haven’t finished reading yet but it seems fine if you remember to read between the lines sometimes. After all, some thing is always lost in translation. They also provide a Foreword and a Translator’s note in the front and Notes pages and an introduction to other works by Dostoevsky in the back of the book.
