Russian literature famously probes the depths of the human soul. Readers of English translations are probably unaware of the symbolic names that Russian writers routinely give their characters, names that are especially evocative in Russian. For example, the Karamazovs, the protagonists of the book, are named after the combination of words that means "dark people", pointing to the low moral qualities of the family.

This edition includes 125 unique endnotes with explanation of all major terms, names, places and other specific details of the Russian cultural and historical background, including biographical facts from personal life of Dostoyevskiy and images of his manuscripts. 31 masterpieces by a gifted Russian illustrator Aleksey Alekseyev (1929) skillfully capture the spirit of the novel.

This edition includes excellent navigation tools to the contents and all endnotes.
