Crime and Punishment

Fyodor Dostoevsky
Nicolas Pasternak Slater and Edited by Sarah J. Young

Oxford World's Classics Hardback Collection

  • A major new translation of Dostoyevsky's enduring classic by Nicolas Pasternak Slater, with editorial material by the UK's leading Dostoevsky expert, Dr. Sarah J. Young
  • The introduction gives a brief biographical sketch of Dostoevsky, focusing on aspects of his life most pertinent to the writing of Crime and Punishment - his experience of prison and the criminals he met there, and his money troubles in the 1860s when he was working on the novel
  • The selected bibliography gives an up-to-date survey of works on Dostoevsky, Crime and Punishment, and the historical and cultural contexts of the novel
  • Notes elucidate potentially obscure references in the text, and also connect the novel to the wider context of Dostoevsky's writing and 19th-century Russian culture, citing other classics of Russian literature and accessible secondary works
