Redemption is the eternal theme of Dostoevsky's works. The Brothers Karamazov, the last work of Dostoevsky, revolves around the experiences of Fedor Karamazov and his sons, showing a complex tragic theme of society, family, morality and humanity in Russia and exploring the existence of God, reason, goodness and evil. Dostoevsky rejects any rationalized moral, historical or political salvation plans, and insists on choosing good and love as a cure for humanity and for saving the sufferings of the Russian nation.
