Why should you read "Crime and Punishment"?
What drives someone to kill in cold blood? What goes through the murderer's mind? And what kind of a society breeds such people? Over 150 years ago Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky took these questions up in what would become one of the best-known works of Russian literature: "Crime and Punishment." Alex Gendler digs into the classic novel's exploration of alienation, morality and redemption. [Directed by WOW-HOW Studio, narrated by Addison Anderson, music by Stephen LaRosa].
