MY PENGUIN

BOOKS BY THE GREATS, COVERS BY YOU.

Raskolnikov, a destitute and desperate former student, wanders through the slums of St Petersburg and commits a random murder without remorse or regret. He imagines himself to be a great man, a Napoleon: acting for a higher purpose beyond conventional moral law. But as he embarks on a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a suspicious police investigator, Raskolnikov is pursued by the growing voice of his conscience and finds the noose of his own guilt tightening around his neck. Only Sonya, a downtrodden prostitute, can offer the chance of redemption.

About the Author:

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky was born in Moscow in 1821, the 2nd of 7 children. From 1849 to 1854 he lived in a convict prison, and in later years his passion for gambling led him deeply into debt. In 1880 he delivered his famous address at theunveiling of Pushkin's memorial in Moscow; he died six months later in 1881.

David McDuff has translated a number of nineteenth-century Russian prose works for the Penguin Classics series.

From the Inside Flap:

Raskolnikov, a destitute and desperate former student, wanders
through the slums of St Petersburg and commits a random murder without
remorse or regret. He imagines himself to be a great man, a Napoleon:
acting for a higher purpose beyond conventional moral law. But as he
embarks on a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a suspicious police
investigator, Raskolnikov is pursued by the growing voice of his conscience
and finds the noose of his own guilt tightening around his neck. Only
Sonya, a downtrodden prostitute, can offer the chance of redemption.
