Determined to overreach his humanity and assert his untrammelled individual will, Raskolnikov, an impoverished student living in the St. Petersburg of the Tsars, commits an act of murder and theft and sets into motion a story which, for its excrutiating suspense, its atmospheric vividness, and its profundity of characterization and vision, is almost unequaled in the literatures of the world. The best known of Dostoevsky's masterpieces, Crime and Punishment can bear any amount of rereading without losing a drop of its power over our imagination.… (more)

Work Information

Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky (1867)

  1. 240
    The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoyevsky (PrincessPaulina, zasmine)
    PrincessPaulina: "The Idiot" is overlooked compared to Dostoevsky's other work, but in my opinion it's the most engaging. Deals with upper crust society in pre-revolutionary Russia
    zasmine: For more of his social dissection
  2. 211
    Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy (Booksloth)
  3. 194
    The Trial by Franz Kafka (SanctiSpiritus, Kantar)
  4. 165
    The Stranger by Albert Camus (chrisharpe, DLSmithies)
    DLSmithies: A compare-and-contrast exercise - Raskolnikov is all nervous energy and hypertension, whereas Meursault is detatched, calm, and won't pretend to feel remorse. Two masterpieces.
  5. 113
    Notes from Underground by Fyodor Dostoyevsky (SanctiSpiritus, Kantar)
  6. 51
    The Man Without Qualities: A Sort of Introduction; Pseudo Reality Prevails {Vol. 1 of 2} by Robert Musil (ateolf)

    Hunger by Knut Hamsun (ateolf)
  9. 87
    The Tell-Tale Heart and Other Writings [Bantam Classics] by Edgar Allan Poe (GCPLreader)
  10. 22
    The Lost Highway by David Adams Richards (figsfromthistle)
    figsfromthistle: Both novels show the unravelling of the human conscience and the lengths the main protagonists go to convince themselves that their crime was necessary.
  11. 23
    Herzog by Saul Bellow (SanctiSpiritus)
  12. 611
    Perfume: The Story of a Murderer by Patrick Süskind (klerulo)
    klerulo: Both these works attempt to get inside the head of singularly amoral sociopathic murderers.

Crime & Punishment remains all things to all men. A super story of crime and detection; A taut psychological novel; and, lastly, A Christian drama of man's eternal revolt against God. ( )

I tried, but this was way too dense for me. The thought of continuing for another 500 pages just proved too tough for my poor brain.

I've read Crime and Punishment in translation several times in my life. No other translation seems to hold a candle to this one! I felt I finally understood what the author was saying.

I know. I know! It's Dostoevsky! But I've read the novel twice and it still just does nothing for me. ( )

تجربه به من ثابت کرده که آثار اگزیستنسیالیستی و آثار روسی خیلی بهم می‌چسبند و وقتی یک رمان هر دو رو داشته باشه می‌تونه خیلی خیلی بیشتر بهم بچسبه. راسکولنیکف، قهرمان جنایات و مکافات برای من یه جورایی همون مورسوی بیگانه‌ی آلبر کامو بود و تفاوت این دوتا فقط در این بود که مورسو به هیچ کسی اهمیت نمی‌داد اما راسکولنیکف برای دوستان و خانواده‌ی خودش اهمیت قائل بود. به همین خاطر این داستان همون فکری رو برای من به وجود آورد که قبلاً بیگانه برای من به وجود آورد... آیا وجدان به عنوان یک چیز درونی و نهادینه شده در ذات ما وجود داره یا فقط یک تعریفیه که فرهنگ به ما تحمیل می‌کنه تا از یک‌سری کارها مثل قتل دوری کنیم؟ ( )

On an exceptionally hot evening early in July a young man came out of the garret in which he lodged in S. Place and walked slowly, as though in hesitation, towards K. bridge. (Garnett translation)
Toward the end of a sultry afternoon early in July a young man came out of his little room in Stolyarny Lane and turned slowly and somewhat irresolutely in the direction of Kamenny Bridge. (Coulson translation)
On a very hot evening at the beginning of July a young man left his little room at the top of a house in Carpenter Lane, went out into the street, and, as though unable to make up his mind, walked slowly in the direction of Kokushkin Bridge.
At the beginning of July, during an extremely hot spell, towards evening, a young man left the closet he rented from tenants in S____y Lane, walked out to the street, and slowly, as if indecisively, headed for the K______n Bridge. (Pevear and Volokhonsky translation)
In het begin van juli, het was tegen de avond en bijzonder warm, verliet een jongeman het kamertje dat hij aan de S-steeg in onderhuur bewoonde, en begaf zich traag, besluiteloos bijna, in de richting van de K-brug.
