Crime and Punishment

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

In Fyodor Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment, the main character, Raskolnikov, is trapped between two opposing forces: The power of pride, and the inescapable voice of conscience. That’s why, if you want to remember just one thing about this story, remember this: Crime and Punishment is a novel about the psychology of the criminal mind. Let’s make it even more simple. This is a book about guilt.
