Mired in poverty, the student Raskolnikov nevertheless thinks well of himself.

Dostoyevsky's penetrating novel of an intellectual whose moral compass goes haywire, and the detective who hunts him down for his terrible crime, is a stunning psychological portrait, a thriller and a profound meditation on guilt and retribution.From the Publisher :
