Motif: Poverty and Punishment

Crime and Punishment

Fyodor Dostoevsky, 1867
Famous for: Very little crime but a whole lotta punishment.

Poverty. It’s everywhere in Crime and Punishment. In fact, it almost seems as though almost every character you meet in Dostoevsky’s novel is wondering where their next meal will come from. That’s why, in Crime and Punishment, poverty is a motif.
