    A peasant attending the market in the neighboring town stoops to pick up a piece of string from the road. Later that day, he is maliciously accused of picking up a lost pocketbook containing five hundred francs and some valuable business papers. Although he is innocent of the charge, and the pocketbook is later handed in to the mayor by the person who actually found it, the taint of the accusation remains. The more the man protests his innocence, the less he is believed.

    The Brothers Karamazov (Russian: Бра́тья Карама́зовы, Brat'ya Karamazovy), also translated as The Karamazov Brothers, is the last novel by Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky. Dostoevsky spent nearly two years writing The Brothers Karamazov, which was published as a serial in The Russian Messenger from January 1879 to November 1880. Dostoevsky died less than four months after its publication.Set in 19th-century Russia, The Brothers Karamazov is a passionate philosophical novel that enters deeply into questions of God, free will, and morality. It is a theological drama dealing with problems of faith, doubt and reason in the context of a modernizing Russia, with a plot that revolves around the subject of patricide. Dostoevsky composed much of the novel in Staraya Russa, which inspired the main setting. It has been acclaimed as one of the supreme achievements in world literature.

    В книгу включены два романа русско-американского писателя Владимира 
    Набокова, созданные в "послесиринский», англоязычный период его 
    творчества. В "Истинной жизни Себастьяна Найта» (1941) рассказчик, 
    поименованный инициалом В., в попытках сочинить биографию своего 
    сводного брата, покойного писателя, попадает в Зазеркалье 
    художественного вымысла, заставляющее усомниться и в личности биографа, и
     в смерти заглавного героя. В романе "Просвечивающие предметы» (1972) 
    герой-повествователь, сотрудник издательской фирмы Хью Персон, 
    обладающий способностью "проницать» прошлое, оказывается действующим 
    лицом произведений некоего писателя R. (пародийного двойника Владимира 
    Набокова), корректором которых он является. Разделенные тремя 
    десятилетиями, "Истинная жизнь Себастьяна Найта» и "Просвечивающие 
    предметы» связаны друг с другом темой литературного творчества и 
    двойственным, обманчиво-ускользающим устройством авторской 
    художественной Вселенной.

He is famous also for his mysterious demise. He wrote a letter to a friend, which he closed by saying, ""As to me, I leave here tomorrow for an unknown destination,"" and then he vanished without a trace, his disappearance becoming one of the most famous in American literary history. ""The Death of Halpin Frayser"" is a deeply disturbing tale, written with the sense of a terrible nightmare in which a man is horribly attacked in a wood by the undead animated corpse of his dead mother.
