Содержание:

Crime and Punishment

Описание:

`Crime and Punishment` is based on Dostoevsky`s own terrifying experiences of summary justice and the cruel penal system of Tsarist Russia. It is a dark tale set in the dingy tenements, backstreets and bars of pre-Revolutionary St Petersburg and concerns the actions of a murderer - Raskolnikov – who, setting himself in the role of a superman of Napoleonic proportions, decides to commit homicide as a matter of principle. Thus the scene is set for an epic story of careful criminal investigation, Roskolnikov`s entrapment in the tentacles of his own conscience, and the possibility of his eventual salvation through punishment and suffering.
