  1. For many years i have been a Dostoevsky fan, and have read some of them 3 or 4 times. There are now two people working together on the best translations ever (not just my opinion) – Richard Pervear and Larissa Volokhonsky. They have also done The Master and Marguarita of Bulgarov and a superb Anna Karenina (Tolstoi) that actually makes her understandable. And their War and Peace (Tolstoi) is wonderful! The translation is so very important.

    The classics have not become classic by accident.
