Crime and Punishment (Illustrated Classics)

by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Book review

�And, in the dark, a thought came to me that no one had ever had before me: I wanted to kill someone, just in order to dare.�

This graphic adaptation of Crime and Punishment masterfully illuminates Dostoevsky�s psychological thriller. Acclaimed French artist Alain Korkos vividly brings to life the mental anguish and moral dilemmas that plague Raskolnikov, a poor St. Petersburg student who murders a miserly pawnbroker. In this classic of Russian literature, the hero, unable to quell his guilt and paranoia, falls from a self-styled �super human� to a tormented soul in search of redemption. Both a philosophical inquiry and searing social critique, this suspense-driven drama remains as widely popular today as ever.
