Crime and Punishment by Fëdor Dostoevskij were published in 1866. It is one of the most exciting novels in world literature because it manages to reach an expressive vertex sought and emulated by dozens of authors who, in the following years, have copied the central theme. Dostoevsky intended to represent the human soul in its multiple expressive nuances and to tell a man’s journey from guilt to expiation.
In this novel, the crime, sin, and punishment are three different moments, through which the author constructs a deep and complex portrait of the soul and its psychological reflexes in human action. The protagonist of this novel is Raskolnikov, a young intellectual who interrupted his university studies due to economic problems. He has a dark and sad character. He is a single character; he spends most of his time bored and developing an egocentric and strongly individualistic vision of himself.
Raskolnikov has no economic means, and his poverty pushes him to rethink morality, building an ethic in which he can expand and modify the boundaries of his freedom. Evil becomes his path of transgression. And in his vision of what is right and what is wrong, he decides to help his sister, who has to marry and does not have the means to do so, killing an old moneylender to steal money from her. Napoleon is one of his landmarks and the immoral actions of the French emperor to become a justification for his actions.
