Translated by Constance Garnett with Introduction and Notes by Dr Keith Carabine, University of Kent at CanterburyCrime and Punishment is one of the greatest and most readable novels ever written.From the very beginning, we are locked up in Raskolnikov’s frenetic consciousness, who, against his best instincts, is inexorably drawn to commit a brutal double murder.From then on, we share his contradictory feelings of self-loathing and pride, contempt for and need for others and terrible despair and the hope of redemption: and, in a remarkable transformation of the detective novel, we follow his desperate efforts to probe and confront his own motivations for so many of the consequences of his crime.The result is a tragic novel, built on a series of very spectacular scenes that illuminate the eternal conflicts at the heart of human existence: especially our desire for expression and personal fulfillment, against the constraints of human morality and laws; and our anguished awareness of the world’s unjust injustices and our own mortality, against the mysteries of divine justice and immortality.
