Bűn és bűnhődés by Fjodor Mihajlovics Dosztojevszkij

By Fjodor Mihajlovics Dosztojevszkij

Dosztojevszkij emberbarátsága nem filantrópia, állásfoglalása nem elfordulás a küzdéstől. Dosztojevszkij egészen, ízig-vérig társadalomhoz forduló művész, ez élteti túl a maga korán, s ez viszi közel megrendítő művét, a Bűn és bűnhődést a ma emberéhez.
Ez a regény a mély ellentmondásokkal küzdő s meghasonlott lelkű géniusz legzártabb, legművészibb gonddal szerkesztett alkotása. Nyilván ez a körülmény magyarázza, hogy világszerte a Bűn és bűnhődés lett életműve legismertebb darabja.
A páratlan lélekábrázolás, az emberi jellemek szuggesztív erejű rajza, a magával ragadó stílus, a mesteri kompozíció, a kapitalista nagy város sikátorainak, piszkos bérkaszárnyáinak, fojtott levegőjű odúinak szorongatóan hiteles képe az írásművészet halhatatlan alkotásai közé emeli ezt a művet. A „detektívregényből” így lesz klasszikus remek, minden idők egyik legmegrázóbb lélekrajzregénye.
