This novel is regarded as one of the most outstanding and timeless novels. It was written by Russian Novelist,Fyodor Dostoyevsky in 1866.

It is classified as a crime, suspense and psychoanalysis novel. In psychoanalysis, the author delves in the analysis of the self and the whims that strike it. He discusses how the human self carries a contradiction within itself; it includes the highest of ideals, yet also hides the worst of moralities. It carries justice and the desire to fulfill it,yet it contains the desire to commit crimes.

The novel tells the story of a youngman called Rodion Romanovich Raskolnikov who is 23 years old. Rodion is an impoverished university ex-student. He has a contradictory and dual personality who hates the society and is indifferent towards it. But he is also a loving,warm and compassionate person.

Rodion comes from an average family, lives inextreme poverty, and because of his temerity, stupidity and distorted thinking he thinks that redeeming himself from the financial crisis he is in and his miserable situation is going to happen suddenly, by a single stroke of luck, and that he can get back to the straight life.
His stroke of luck was to kill an old, stupid, deaf and greedy moneylender who does not carefor anyone, nor does she feel compassionate towards any of the poor creditors.She never regrets destroying other people’s life, and all she dreams about is to gain more and more money interests. She even destroyed her sister’s life and used to torture her although her sister was caring for her.

But for the novel’s protagonist she is an old woman who offenses the world around her and that she must be eliminated. She is old, and she might die within few months, so whywait?!

Raskolnikov, the novel’s protagonist,commits his crime and kills the old moneylender dreaming of helping his mother and sister and pursue his university education. After committing the crime, a complex psychological process starts. The murderer begins to see the outcomes of his crime and starts to be tormented by his conscience. He is now trapped between the good and evil desires that God has instilled in the human self and the law that humans have created. This internal conflict led him to seek solitude and break away from people. His psychological agony and remorse continue to haunt him so much so that he decided to willingly accept the type of torture that the law shall inflict upon him so that he can finally atone for his crime.
But he already knows that the punishment that the law shall decide will not be harsher than his internalagony. Despite that, he decides to surrender himself to the law and the court.

During his imprisonment, Raskolnikov goes through a human experience that restores his humanity. It was a love relationship with a prostitute called Sonia whom he knew through her drunken father who forced her into prostitution for money. This is how love can change the psychological structure of this stray young man, besides the physical punishment in prison.
