Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

When you have to confront your own self

An examination of the psychology of a murderer, Raskolnikov. What do you do when you are forced to confront the ugliest parts of yourself? Reason gives away to paranoia. When all rationalizations fail to prevent your fall into the bleakest parts of yourself. When a sense of extreme alienation from your peers, the society and your life threaten to unravel any semblance of reality. Your mind becomes a chaotic prison. You ask yourself – is this madness or is it the society which surrounds me that is mad? Through the erratic mind of Raskolnikov, the author portrays the turmoil of existence.
