Crime and Punishment (1866), considered by critics as the first masterpiece of Dostoevsky, is a deep psychological analysis of its protagonist, the young student Raskolnikov, whose firm belief that humanitarian justify evil leads to the murder of a petersburgués usurer. But, of committing the crime, the guilt will be a constant nightmare with which the student will be unable to live. The feverish and compassionate style of Dostoevsky masterfully follows only the recesses of the conflicting emotions of the student and reflects the extreme struggle waged with his conscience while wandering the streets of St. Petersburg. Already in prison, Raskolnikov realizes that happiness can not be achieved by following a plan established a priori by reason: be gained by suffering.
