Crime and Punishment

By Fyodor Dostoevsky

This book is in very good condition. There is minimal wear on the front, back, spine and edges of the cover boards. There is no bumping on the corners of the cover boards. The previous owners name and motto is affixed to the inside of the front cover board. The pages are yellowed and tanned, but the pages are clear of all markings. "Raskolnikov, an impoverished student living in the St. Petersburg of the tsars, is determined to overreach his humanity and assert his untrammeled individual will. When he commits an act of murder and theft, he sets into motion a story that, for its excruciating suspense, its atmospheric vividness, and its depth of characterization and vision is almost unequaled in the literatures of the world. The best known of Dostoevsky's masterpieces, Crime and Punishment can bear any amount of rereading without losing a drop of its power over our imaginations. Dostoevsky's drama of sin, guilt, and redemption transforms the sordid story of an old woman's murder into the nineteenth century's profoundest and most compelling philosophical novel...." - Anonymous
