Description

Raskolnikov, an impoverished student living in the St. Petersburg of the tsars, is determined to overreach his humanity and assert his untrammeled individual will. When he commits an act of murder and theft, he sets into motion a story that, for its excruciating suspense, its atmospheric vividness, and its depth of characterization and vision is almost unequaled in the literature 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 imaginations.

Dostoevsky's drama of sin, guilt, and redemption transforms the sordid story of an old woman's murder into the nineteenth century's profoundest and most compelling philosophical novel.

Award-winning translators Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky render this elusive and wildly innovative novel with an energy, suppleness, and range of voice that do full justice to the genius of its creator.

    A brilliant psychological examination of the inner working of the criminal mind. Certainly ahead of it’s time!

    Clear and expressive narrator well done and interesting. Keep it up
  • (5/5)
    Probably the greatest book ever written. One needs to read Dostoyevski - his brilliance cannot be simply explained.

    A look at depression and poverty through the eyes of a Russian of another age. Great read! If you hated it in school, you owe yourself another go.
