Crime and Punishment (5/8)

Another all-time classic often dissected in educational settings is Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment, which focuses on protagonist, Rodion Raskolnikov, a down and out former college student in St. Petersburg, Russia, who devises a plan to murder a dishonest pawn shop owner for money. Rodion believes that he could use this money to make a fresh start for himself, but he begins to have second thoughts which complicate his plan.
