Crime and Punishment
Crime and Punishment | Fyodor Dostoyevsky
One of the worlds greatest novels, Crime and Punishment is the story of a murder and its consequencesan unparalleled tale of suspense set in the midst of nineteenth-century Russias troubled transition to the modern age.In the slums of czarist St. Petersburg lives young Raskolnikov, a sensitive, intellectual student. The poverty he has always known drives him to believe that he is exempt from moral law. But when he puts this belief to the test and commits murder, there results unbearable suffering. Crime and punishment, the novel reminds us, grow from the same seed.

Listened to the first two chapters of Crime and Punishment while #audiostitching today as a break from writing papers, and it feels so nice to be back with a Russian novel, it's like coming home. 😍 #NewYearWhoDis @Emilymdxn

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I can relate to that! Russian lit is 🙌 3w
Emilymdxn I‘m so glad you‘re enjoying it! I worried that whoever got my list is like find it too much of a beast to get through so I‘m glad you‘re liking it! 3w
Caterina @Emilymdxn It's actually perfect, I've been meaning to read it for ages and it moved higher up my TBR last year when you reviewed it! I've read War and Peace & Anna Karenina twice each, so this one doesn't seem so intimidating. 😂 @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Yes!! And this is my first Dostoyevsky 🙈 so I'm really thankful to finally be reading it! 😊 3w

An #amazing book made all the more amazing with the #littleraskols 😈 This is a great episode of In Our Time, with useful insight into both the writer & the book: https://bbc.in/2R271T0 One of the guests is Oliver Ready, whose translation is the version I read.

Day 19 - #ClassicYouEnjoyed #GratefulReads #CrimeandPunishment #FyodorDostoyevsky

A must read classic! Masterpiece! Riveting!

Murder story, told from a murder‘s point of view, that implicates even the most innocent reader in its enormities. It is a cat-and-mouse game between a tormented young killer and a cheerfully implacable detective. It is a preternaturally acute investigation of the forces that impel a man toward sin, suffering, and grace.

OriginalCyn620 I have not read this classic yet! 3mo

Is it #humannature that a guilt-ridden criminal experiences mental torture, and the tormenting guilt is much more terrible than actual imprisonment itself? In the story, Dostoevsky depicts the protagonist as so.

I reread my old college copy of this classic because I decided to teach it this year. I went through a Russian Literature period in my teens and burned through most of Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky. I hope to inspire the same interest in my students. The struggles with conscience and morality are still relevant. I would like to read some other translations of this work for comparison.

Raskolnikov is a bundle of nerves and anxiety, which makes him – and I know I shouldn‘t say this, given that he is a literal axe murderer, but I don‘t care – totally relatable! Crime and Punishment follows his moral dilemmas leading up to a murder(s), and his complete psychological denouement afterwards. It‘s compelling stuff! Full review here: http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/crime-and-punishment-fyodor-dostoyevsky/

#WanderingJune
I started reading Crime and Punishment once, but never finished it. 🤷🏼‍♀️I was a bit stumped on this prompt & didn't want to repeat my pick of the streets Tokyo from two years ago so I did some Googling. I read that many of the streets & place names in Dostoevsky's novel were masked by abbreviation to placate the Russian censors. So the way it is written, the St. Petersburg in the book is a place #WhereTheStreetsHaveNoName 🤔

WOW. This was so much more exciting than I was expecting, it made me think and feel so much, it was philosophical but never up itself like I thought it might. I could have followed these characters and agonised over what was going to happen to them for twice as long. The women were all breathtaking. Katerina made me deeply uncomfortable and frightened, and Sonya might be one of my favourite characters in all of literature now.

‘Such dreams, morbid dreams, are always long remembered and produce a strong impression on the disturbed and already excited organism of the person. Raskolnikov had a terrible dream...‘

There are a few #dreams (3 or 4, if I think) in the book, which are loaded with symbolisms.

Well, I did finish Crime and Punishment along with The Hating Game on audio.

Mehso-so

I started reading this book a couple of times during the last ten years but never made it past page 100. Books, movies, newspapers kept referencing parts of Crime and Punishment, so "it has to be good, and so I must finish it". It's a long ride, too long for my taste. There are or two interesting ideas in the book, but it's not worth to read the 750 pages, as I could have read 3 more entertaining books in the same time. It's also a bit gloomy.
