Day 19 - #ClassicYouEnjoyed #GratefulReads #CrimeandPunishment #FyodorDostoyevsky

A must read classic! Masterpiece! Riveting!

Murder story, told from a murder‘s point of view, that implicates even the most innocent reader in its enormities. It is a cat-and-mouse game between a tormented young killer and a cheerfully implacable detective. It is a preternaturally acute investigation of the forces that impel a man toward sin, suffering, and grace.

OriginalCyn620 I have not read this classic yet! 3w

If you have kids...read this to them! It is never too soon to introduce kids to Dostoyevsky. Murder, corruption, redemption, forgiveness...these are heavy topics; but Yehoshua does a brilliant job rewriting this classic for young children.
My kids loved it. #CrimeandPunishment #Dostoyevsky #ClassicsforKids #RussianLit

DS9 4.19 #HardTime Let's torture Miles O'Brien again! A favourite of mine, a gut wrenching episode on the real trauma of incarceration, but it sadly stands alone and is never heard of again. Depression should not solved in between episodes. Fear not, though, he'll be tortured again soon. This epi, along with TNG's Chain of Command, are perfect examples to teach how torture affects humans. #startreksummerjune

Megabooks Chain of Command was very powerful, too, I agree. Both the DS9 episode and the TNG one are hard for me to rewatch. 6mo
tournevis @Megabooks I'd be worries if you found them easy to watch. 6mo

Went to the bookstore with my dad, and he bought me these books because I got so emotional looking at the beautiful cover art #coverart #barnesandnoble #crimeandpunishment #frankenstein

Crime and Punishment | Fyodor Dostoevsky

In this novel, Dostoevsky develops the problem of human duplicity, which has its roots in the tormenting coexistence of a dual nature.

#RussianLit #Fifthandfinalvolume #TheMantleoftheProphet(1871-1881)

"My concern with Dostoevsky, as I explained in the preface to my first volume, had grown out of my interest in #FrenchExistentialism. For Sartre and Camus, a work such as #NotesfromUnderground and characters such as Raskolnikov in #CrimeandPunishment and Kirilliov in #TheDevils had become essential landmarks to which they referred in defining their own points of view"(xi).

“It seems to me absurd that the laws, which are an expression of the public will, which detest and punish homicide, should themselves commit it, and that to deter citizens from murder, they order a public one.”

~ Cesare Beccaria

• Learning about the history of capital punishment; in my humble opinion, a convincing perspective from Cesare Beccaria. Love to learn about important societal issues •
