About the book:

One of the worlds greatest novels, Crime and Punishment is the story of a murder and its consequencesan unparalleled tale of suspense set in the midst of nineteenth-century Russias troubled transition to the modern age.

In the slums of czarist St. Petersburg lives young Raskolnikov, a sensitive, intellectual student. The poverty he has always known drives him to believe that he is exempt from moral law. But when he puts this belief to the test and commits murder, there results unbearable suffering. Crime and punishment, the novel reminds us, grow from the same seed.

No other novelist, wrote Irving Howe of Dostoyevsky, has dramatized so powerfully the values and dangers, the uses and corruptions of systematized thought. But Sigmund Freud and others saw the Russians work in a different light. Said Freud, He might have been a liberator of mankind. Instead he chose to be its jailer.

He is the only psychologist I have anything to learn from.Friedrich Nietzsche
