    The quotes are very much to the point. Schiller was indeed concerned with crime and punishment as shows one of his most famous ballads.

    Which translation are you reading Poppins? I would like to have a look at this German as reproduced by Dostoyevsky.

    Maybe there was a certain ambivalence, because many Germans emigrated to Russia....

    While we are at it, some confusion about names:Rascol or Rascal as Rascolnikov is ok. But Ras appears in the post as shortage for Raskolnikov but also for another name, Razumikin I think.

    And I...

    I think, since there exist values at all one of the basic narratives literature is reproducing again and again is this fight between good and evil in a multiplicity of forms.

    Raz is drunk. But I think this exaggerated sentimental behavior has may be to do with him being Russian and certainly with him being a Dostoevsky character.

    Good point, Poppins. I think D. left much of his personal instability to his characters. But the committing of crimes he left wholly to them.

    Thanks, Sancho! In modern courts, the fact that he was mentally ill when he commited the crimes should warrant R. a lighter sentence, I think.

    Thanks for this post Poppins. On account of my eyes I haven´t read all posts on C&P yet and I´m reading then starting with the last. This horse episode is (understandably) fully erased of my memory....

    I still have to read all posts about C&P but this part is terrible. Looking back I don´t remember if R. was already ill, when he commited the crimes or if he fell ill because he commited them.

    As you say yourself Poppins Judaism seems not to be a issue with Dostoievsky. Christianity and moral questions as such seem to be relevant above formal religious churches.

    I think "Notes From the Underground" is a good preparation for "Crime and Punishment". It shows Dostoevsky at his grumpiest and one has a view of the main character from his inside.
