Overview

Poor and in desperate circumstances, Rodion Romanovich Raskolnikov plots the murder of a pawnbroker to steal what he considers her ill-gotten gains. To his mind, he is justified in eliminating an unscrupulous person who thrives on the misfortunes of others and using her money for more benevolent purposes. When his well-wrought plans go awry, Raskolnikov finds himself little better off financially, and now, a murderer. Wracked with guilt, he finds himself torn between confessing his crime to clear his conscience, or following the path that providence seems to be shaping to help him get away with the perfect crime.
 
First published in 1866, Fyodor Dostoevsky's tale of a tortured conscience turned upon itself is a landmark of Russian literature and one of the most popular novels of all time. This 2011 edition, featuring Constance Garnett's classic translation, is one of Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics. Each voume features authoritative texts by the world's greatest authors in exquisitely designed bonded leather bindings, with distinctive gilt edging and an attractive silk-ribbon bookmark. Decorative, durable, and collectible, these books offer hours of pleasure to readers young and old and are an indispensible cornerstone of any home library.
