Description

Raskolnikov, a destitute and desperate former student, wanders through the slums of St. Petersburg and commits a random murder without remorse. He imagines himself to be a great man, a Napoleon: 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.

About Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Born in Moscow in 1821, Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky lived in a convict prison from 1849 to 1854, and in later years his passion for gambling led him deeply into debt. In 1880 he delivered his famous address at the unveiling of Pushkin's memorialin Moscow; he died six months later in 1881.
