Description - Crime and Punishment: A New Translation by Fyodor Dostoevsky
A rare Dostoevsky translation...a major contribution to the dissemination and understanding of the Russian novel.
William Mills Todd III, Harvard University
Published to great acclaim and fierce controversy in 1866, Fyodor Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment has left an indelible mark on global literature and on our modern world. Declared a PBS "Great American Read," Michael Katz's sparkling new translation gives new life to the story of Raskolnikov, an impoverished student who sees himself as extraordinary and therefore free to commit crimes-even murder-in a work that best embodies the existential dilemmas of man's instinctual will to power. Embracing the complex linguistic blend inherent in modern literary Russian, Katz "revives the intensity Dostoevsky's first readers experienced, and proves that Crime and Punishment still has the power to surprise and enthrall us" (Susan Reynolds).
With its searing and unique portrayal of the labyrinthine universe of nineteenth-century St. Petersburg, this "rare Dostoevsky translation" (William Mills Todd III, Harvard) will captivate lovers of world literature for years to come.
