This is quite an important book. Dostoevsky's Notes from (the) Underground is perhaps the most famous response. I'm surprised that I could not find it in Project Gutenberg...
Thanks in advance!
According to the wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/What_Is...Done%3F_(novel
) it was not translated into English until 1973 which means it is still under copyright. Translations get a new copyright by the translator.
You might look at http://www.archive.org/details/whatstobedonerom00cher
which claims an earlier translation. Perhaps you can use it.
