9780099981909: Crime and Punishment (Vintage Classics)

A troubled young man commits the perfect crime: the murder of a vile pawnbroker whom no one will miss. Raskolnikov is desperate for money, but he convinces himself that his motive for the murder is to benefit mankind. So begins a tragic novel that illuminates the eternal struggle between human emotions and desire, and the harsh laws of ethics and justice. Part thriller and part philosophical meditation, this is a penetrating look at the core of human nature.

About the Author:

Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821–1881) is best known for investigating the meeting of morality and social justice within his fiction. His other noted works include The Brothers Karamazov (1880) and Notes from the Underground (1864). Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky have together translated numerous Russian texts into English, including Anna Karenina, The Master and Margarita, and War and Peace.

Review:

"Dostoevsky makes Martin Amis seem as if he was writing 130 years ago and that Dostoevsky is writing now. Read all of Dostoevsky. These books are for now and they matter, because it's up to us to call a halt to our TV producers, politicians, gutless artists, poets and writers: these "teenagers of all ages" who are propelling us towards a consumerist hell of disposability over quality" -- Billy Childish "Dostoevsky's finest masterpiece" * John Bayley * "Donne, Herbert, Shakespeare, Jane Austen, George Eliot, Dostoevsky, Henry James - these are the great psychologists - far greater than Freud or Klein or Jung" -- Sally Vickers "The best translation of Crime and Punishment currently available... An especially faithful re-creation...with a coiled-spring kinetic energy... Don't miss it" * Washington Post * "Crime and Punishment...is about a big subject - the meaning of life - yet it is gritty, gripping and it's depiction of city life gives it a modern, timeless feel" -- Leila Aboulela, author of The Translator
