Crime and Punishment

Item Details

"And, in the dark, a thought came to me that no one had ever had before me: I wanted to kill someone, just in order to dare." This graphic adaptation of Crime and Punishment masterfully illuminates Dostoevsky's psychological thriller. Acclaimed French artist Alain Korkos vividly brings to life the mental anguish and moral dilemmas that plague Raskolnikov, a poor St. Petersburg student who murders a miserly pawnbroker. In this classic of Russian literature, the hero, unable to quell his guilt and paranoia, falls from a self-styled "super human" to a tormented soul in search of redemption. Both a philosophical inquiry and searing social critique, this suspense-driven drama remains as widely popular today as ever.
