Raskolnikov & Crime (and Punishment)

Crime and Punishment

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

If you’re looking for a likeable main character, Rodya Raskolnikov, Dostoevsky’s protagonist in Crime and Punishment, is not your guy. How would you know? Take his name as a hint. “Raskolnikov” comes from the Russian word “Raskolnik,” meaning “divided.” More on Mr. Alienated himself in this Recap.
