One of the rare Dostoevsky novels to organize itself around a central theme rather than a central story or character, The House of the Dead explores life and death in the confines of a nineteenth century Siberian prison. Largely based on Dostoevsky’s own experiences while in exile, the novel examines prison life and the brutality of the captive population, as well as that of the prison guards and administrators. Inspiring Dostoevsky to feature murder and many of other sinister elements in his later works, The House of the Dead is an essential read for historians and Dostoevsky scholars alike.

About the Author:

Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821 1881), one of nineteenth-century Russia s greatest novelists, spent four years in a convict prison in Siberia, after which he was obliged to enlist in the army. In later years his penchant for gambling sent him deeply into debt. Most of his important works were written after 1864, including Notes from Underground, Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, and The Brothers Karamazov, all available from Penguin Classics.


David McDuff was educated at the University of Edinburgh and has translated a number of works for Penguin Classics, including Dostoyevsky s The Brothers Karamazov.
