Crime and Punishment (En, HC, Penguin Clothbound Classic)

By: Dostoyevsky, Fyodor (1821-1881) / Tr: McDuff, David

Language: English


Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s seminal classic, now back in a beautiful hardcover edition designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith. Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

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.

This vivid translation by David McDuff has been acclaimed as the most accessible version of Dostoyevsky’s great novel, rendering its dialogue with a unique force and naturalism. This edition of Crime and Punishment also includes a new chronology of Dostoyevsky’s life and work.
