Dostoyevskyâs epic masterpiece, unabridged, with an afterword by Robin Feuer Miller
One of the worldâs greatest novels, Crime and Punishment is the story of a murder and its consequencesâan unparalleled tale of suspense set in the midst of nineteenth-century Russiaâs troubled transition to the modern age.Â
In the slums of czarist St. Petersburg lives young Raskolnikov, a sensitive, intellectual student. The poverty he has always known drives him to believe that he is exempt from moral law. But when he puts this belief to the test, he suffers unbearably. Crime and punishment, the novel reminds us, grow from the same seed.Â
âNo other novelist,â wrote Irving Howe of Dostoyevsky, âhas dramatized so powerfully the values and dangers, the uses and corruptions of systematized thought.â And Friedrich Nietzsche called him âthe only psychologist I have anything to learn from.â
