The Brothers Karamazov

This course belongs to our advanced level category. During the time usually allotted to daily writing assignments, your student will read larger portions of the assigned text, Fyodor Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov (1880). Before beginning The Brothers Karamazov, your student should examine our three essay prompts. After reading the text with these topics in mind, he or she should choose one and write an analytical essay.

We consider The Brothers Karamazov an advanced-level text for its length, emotional intensity, and philosophical depth. We recommend this book for students in their junior or senior year.
