Crime and Punishment

4.4/5

Crime and Punishment focuses on the mental anguish and moral dilemmas of Rodion Raskolnikov, an impoverished ex-student in Saint Petersburg who formulates a plan to kill an unscrupulous pawnbroker for her money. Before the killing, Raskolnikov believes that with the money he could liberate himself from poverty and go on to perform great deeds.

“To go wrong in one's own way is better than to go right in someone else's.”

Fyodor Dostoevsky, Crime and Punishment
