Book Summary

Published to great acclaim and fierce controversy in 1866, Fyodor Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment has left an indelible mark on global literature and our modern world, and is still known worldwide as the quintessential Russian novel. 

The story centers around Raskolnikov and the murder of a contemptible pawnbroker. This dark and tense work explores the idea that some things that are morally wrong can ultimately benefit mankind.
