Dostoevsky's Crime &Punishment
Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment In this course we will study Dostoevsky’s best-known novel, Crime and Punishment (1866) intensively. We begin by reading Balzac’s Eugenie Grandet (1833), which Dostoevsky translated into Russian (1843). Then we turn to the author’s Notes from Underground (1864). Both of these works will serve as an introduction to Crime and Punishment; we will also consult the author’s notebooks for the novel, and compare them with the final version.
