Most widely held works by Constance Garnett
Crime and punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )
210 editions published between 1866 and 2016 in English and German and held by 6,240 libraries worldwide
Determined to overreach his humanity and assert his untrammelled individual will, Raskolnikov, an impoverished student living in the St. Petersburg of the Tsars, commits an act of murder and theft and sets into motion a story which, for its excrutiating suspense, its atmospheric vividness, and its profundity of characterization and vision, is almost unequaled in the literatures of the world. The best known of Dostoevsky's masterpieces, Crime and Punishment can bear any amount of rereading without losing a drop of its power over our imagination
The image of Chekhov : forty stories in the order in which they were written by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov( Book )
253 editions published between 1916 and 2017 in English and Chinese and held by 4,921 libraries worldwide
"This collection, selected by Shelby Foote, presents seventy of Chekhov's early short stories, written between 1883 and 1888, in celebrated translations by Constance Garnett. One of the most memorable is "The Death of a Government Clerk," a glorious parody in which a fawning official is undone by an ill-timed sneeze. "On the Road," the history of an educated man's search for convictions, is one of Chekhov's finest dramatic stories and the source of his first full-length play, Ivanov. And in "The Steppe," which marked a turning point in Chekhov's career, a boy's picaresque journey across the Russian heartland evokes the soul of Russia itself."--Jacket

"Arrested in 1849 for belonging to a secret group of radical utopians, Fyodor Dostoevsky was sentenced to four years in a Siberian labor camp--a terrible mental, spiritual, and physical ordeal that inspired him to write The House of the Dead. Told from the point of view of a fictitious narrator--a convict serving a ten year sentence for murdering his wife--The House of the Dead describes in vivid detail the horrors that Dostoevsky himself witnessed while in prison: the brutality of the guards who relished cruelty for its own sake; the evil of criminals who enjoy murdering children; and the existence of decent souls amid filth and degradation. Also included in this volume is Dostoevsky's first published work, Poor Folk, a novel written in the form of letters that brought Dostoevsky immediate critical and public recognition."--Cover
The brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )
8 editions published between 1943 and 1961 in English and held by 990 libraries worldwide
Dostoyevsky was the son of an impoverished nobleman of Lithuanian origin. born in 1821 in Moscow, where his father held the post of resident doctor at a charity hospital. The family had small living quarters on the hospital grounds, and Fyodor became acquainted at an early age with misery, misfortune and death. Doctor Dostoyevsky, authoritarian and morose, believed in old fashioned discipline and strict religious upbringing, and Fyodor's childhood was a rather depressing one. He lost his mother at 16, at which age he was entered in the School of Military Engineers in St. Petersburg. In the extraordinary world in which the sublime and the melodramatic, the pathological and the sound, the intuitive and the cerebral are blended in a unique amalgam, The Brothers Karamazov, Dostoyevsky's last novel, occupies a place all its own. Written when he was almost sixty and published in 1880, shortly before his death, it is not only the most mature and complete of his great works but undoubtedly also one of the most representative, since it sums up all his ideas and typifies all the achievements of his art. The Brothers Karamazov encompasses a variety of characters from many strata of Czarisrt society ... aristocrats, serfs, monks, women of the people, intellectuals, officials which offers a veritable panorama of Russian life in the late 19th century
