We’re resuming our monthly Readers’ Club meetings from August with Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov, which we had selected in our last meeting before the summer break.
Dostoyevsky, the great 19th Century Russian writer, is known for his exploration of human psychology and religious and philosophical questions. The Brothers Karamazov is Dostoyevsky’s final novel and also arguably his finest.
In Karamazov, all of Dostoyevsky’s favourite themes are in full display: debates on religion and morality, the concept of justice and punishment, an examination of human psychology, familial hatred, existentialism, and guilt. These themes play out in the story through the apparently crazy members of the Karamazov family. With its diverse array of haunting characters and fascinating philosophical discussions, this novel is a must-read from world literature.
Details of the meeting are as follows:
Day/Date: Wednesday, 2 August 2017
Time: 6 PM
Venue: We’ve learned that the Classic Rock cafe has closed down. We’re finalising another venue and will announce it a few days before the scheduled meeting. Thanks for your patience.
Hope to see you in a few weeks. Thanks!
