This acclaimed new
translation of Dostoyevsky&rsquo;s &ldquo;psychological record
of a crime&rdquo; gives his dark masterpiece of murder and pursuit
a renewed vitality, expressing its jagged, staccato urgency and
fevered atmosphere as never before. Raskolnikov, a destitute and
desperate former student, wanders alone through the slums of 'st.
Petersburg, deliriously imagining himself above society&rsquo;s
But when he commits a random murder, only suffering ensues.
Embarking on a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a suspicious
police investigator, Raskolnikov finds the noose of his own guilt
tightening around his neck. Only 'sonya, a downtrodden prostitute, can
offer the chance of redemption.
