Brothers Karamazov in Two Volumes

This image depicts a Russian-language, two-volume set of Brothers Karamazov.  Fyodor Dostoevsky, its author, died four months after finishing the novel.

What motivated Dostoevsky to write this story?  Among other things, he tells us this:

The chief problem dealt with throughout this particular work is the very one which has, my whole life long, tormented my conscious and subconscious being: the question of the existence of God.
