Fyodor Dostoyevsky: Crime and Punishment
English, pdf, mobi, e-pub,
Through the story of
the brilliant but conflicted young Raskolnikov and the murder he
commits, Fyodor Dostoevsky explores the theme of redemption through
suffering. Crime and Punishment put Dostoevsky at the forefront
of Russian writers when it appeared in 1866 and is now one of the most
famous and influential novels in world literature.The
poverty-stricken Raskolnikov, a talented student, devises a theory about
extraordinary men being above the law, since in their brilliance they
think “new thoughts” and so contribute to society. He then sets out to
prove his theory by murdering a vile, cynical old pawnbroker and her
sister. The act brings Raskolnikov into contact with his own buried
conscience and with two characters — the deeply religious Sonia, who has
endured great suffering, and Porfiry, the intelligent and discerning
official who is charged with investigating the murder — both of whom
compel Raskolnikov to feel the split in his nature. Dostoevsky provides
readers with a suspenseful, penetrating psychological analysis that goes
beyond the crime — which in the course of the novel demands drastic
punishment — to reveal something about the human condition: The more we
intellectualize, the more imprisoned we become.
