Crime and Punishment is the story of a brutal double murder and its aftermath.
Raskolnikov, a poor student, kills a pawnbroker and her sister, and then has to face up to the moral consequences of his actions.
The novel is compelling and rewarding, full of meaning and symbolism, and raises profound questions about the individual and society, and the nature of free will.
Translated by Constance Garnett, with an Afterword by Oliver Francis.
