Description


This is an exquisite hardbound edition of Fyodor Dostoevsky’s masterpiece—Crime and Punishment. It first appeared in instalments in Russian Messenger in 1866. By this time, Dostoevsky had been orphaned, imprisoned, almost died, lost his wife and his brother. He was also neck-deep in debt. From such a man came the story of the psychological impact of committing a crime. In this book,
Raskolnikov murders an old, evil pawnbroker. Good riddance, according to him, since the woman was an oppressor of the weak, and this act allowed him to solve his own financial problems. Yet, it is a crime, and the guilt begins gnaw at him inside, even though he considers himself to be an ‘extraordinary person’ whose actions are above the law.
This edition, with gilded edges and beautiful endpapers, is perfect for gifting and will prove to be a valuable addition to any library.

About the Author


"The most important Russian author of his time, Fyodor Mikhaylovich Dostoyevsky (also spelled Dostoevsky) was born on November 11, 1821, in Moscow. From a young age, he was introduced to literature by way of fairy tales and folk tales narrated to him.
After completing his studies, Dostoevsky became a sub-lieutenant. In 1843, he began to work as a lieutenant engineer. His first piece of writing, a translation of Balzac’ s Eugé nie Grandet, was published in the same year. Poor Folk, Dostoevsky’ s first novel was published in 1846.
Between 1846 and 1849, Dostoevsky wrote works that were face-paced narratives. His short stories were featured regularly in Annals of the Fatherland, such as ‘ The Landlady’ , ‘ A Weak Heart’ , and ‘ Wild Nights’ . Dostoevsky also published a monthly magazine Vremya under the editorship of his brother. Borne out of Dostoevsky’ s traumatic experiences and the misery of his general life and constant poverty, sprung out his masterpiece— Crime and Punishment. Dostoevsky wrote many other notable works such as Notes from the Underground (1864), Idiot (1868-69), The Possessed (1873), The Adult (1875), and The Brothers Karamazov (1881), which was his last work.
On February 9, 1881, Dostoevsky breathed his last after he suffered multiple haemorrhages. "
