Fedor Dostoevsky (detail) by Vasily Perov, 1872

Some say Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina is the greatest of all novels. Others say The Brothers Karamazov. Humanities scholar Clay Jenkinson’s nomination is Crime and Punishment.

We all know that reading Russian novels seems like a formidable undertaking. Join Jenkinson  as he provides both a reading and an interpretation of Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment and offers clues to a successful appreciation of how Russian novels work. Bring your buried secrets and guilty conscience!
