Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamazov

We will discuss Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamazov.  You may use any translation, but I highly recommend the translation by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky.   We used their translation for War and Peace, and it was simply beautiful.  The reading schedule is below.
