All of them are members of the family. Everybody has a motive. The atmosphere of horror and suspense is growing; the number of victims is increasing. The logic of the murders cannot be determined.

Cover of book Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

It is one of the most difficult works in the creativity activity of the writer and in Russian classical literature. It was the period of the 60′s years of the XIX century, when many theories were created. The main point of these theories was a person opposed to the outside world. He was in search of his “I” and as a result, could rise above the society. People started moving away from God and finding explanations for the most terrible crimes on Earth. The main character is one of them. The young student Rodion Raskolnikov commits a crime. He kills an old woman. He does it not because he is poor and cannot pay for his education or flat. He does it to prove himself that he has the right to commit such acts. But all the acts have their consequences.
