Symbols: Crime, Punishment, and St. Petersburg

Crime and Punishment

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

There’s one place you definitely won’t want to travel after reading Crime and Punishment. That’s right: St. Petersburg. The city Dostoevsky depicts in his novel is dirty, poverty-stricken, and downright foul. But don’t just hold your nose and walk away. St. Petersburg is also the most important symbol in Crime and Punishment.
