A century after it first appeared, Crime and Punishment remains one of the most gripping psychological thrillers in literature. A poverty-stricken young student, financially, physically, and emotionally stressed, is faced with an opportunity to solve his problems with one simple but horrifying act: the murder of a elderly pawnbroker. She is, he feels, just a vermin of society. But does the end justify the means? Rodion Romanovich Raskolnikov makes his decision—and then has to live with it. Dostoyevsky, in masterly fashion, contrasts the comedy and tragedy of life in St. Petersburg with the anguish and turmoil of Raskolnikov's inner life.

Author Bio: Fyodor Dostoevsky

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (1821–1881) was a Russian novelist, journalist, and short-story writer whose psychological penetration into the darkest recesses of the human heart had a profound and universal influence on the twentieth-century novel. He was born in Moscow, the son of a surgeon. Leaving the study of engineering for literature, he published Poor Folk in 1846. As a member of revolutionary circles in St. Petersburg, he was condemned to death in 1849. A last-minute reprieve sent him to Siberia for hard labor. Returning to St. Petersburg in 1859, he worked as a journalist and completed his masterpiece, Crime and Punishment, as well as other works, including The Idiot and The Brothers Karamazov.
