Introducing Dostoevsky’s book Crime and Rewards
The Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky He was arrested in 1849 for plotting against the government and sentenced to death along with other friends.

Of course, the offer of the death penalty, which was made by a military court, was not approved, but nevertheless, it was decided to hold a dramatic execution ceremony to teach the convicts a last-minute amnesty. Dostoevsky was later transferred to a prison in Siberia.

The great and extremely important novel Crime and Punishment, entitled The English Crime and Punishment, is a lasting work by Fyodor Dostoevsky. In this book, we learn about Dostoevsky’s original philosophy, his solution to save Russia from the clutches of nihilism, and the voice of conscience, which has never been so well discussed in any other book.

But Dostoevsky also experienced many ups and downs in his life, and almost all of his books were written under certain circumstances. The book Crime and Rewards is no exception and is written under special conditions. The translator of the book writes in the introduction of his book about this:

In 1863, first Dostoevsky’s wife and a year later Mikhail, his only beloved brother, renounced this world and left him alone in the face of various material and spiritual troubles. Dostoevsky considers this period of life to be one of the most difficult days of his life. The instability and hypocrisy of his friends also adds to his suffering. The magazine was inevitably shut down, and Dostoevsky devoted all his time to creative literary work. From then on, art became his life. What writing both entertained and calmed his nerves and was his only means of livelihood. A work that reflects all his grief and submission and satisfaction in the face of misery and hardship these days, is the famous novel Crime and Punishment, in which the impact of his inner experiences and explorations and his endless effort to find the truth of life is evident. This work made him famous as a skilful writer with a keen psychoanalytic, precise, and far-sighted psychoanalytic talent.

A sentence from the book Crime and Rewards:

Do you know how I know you as a person? One of them I know is that if you believe in God or something, even if your liver is removed, you will stand up and look at your tormentors with a smile. Well then find that faith to live.

The Crime and Punishment, like Dostoevsky’s other works, has an astonishing storyline based on the story of oppressed and sick people in which he praises suffering. The contents of the letter he sent to his brother in 1859 show that the plot came to Fyodor when he was spending his bitter days in prison and writing about his pain.

This book tells the story of a man named Radion Romanovich Raskelnikov who has a strong hatred for Alyona Ivanona. Alyona is the name of an old woman in Rusk’s neighborhood who, of course, was better; Because he was killed in a horrible crime and the perpetrator was none other than Radion. The old woman’s death plan and access to her money have long been ingrained in her mind and finally came to fruition. Since the moon never stays behind the clouds, the police, after constant searches and searching to find out the secret of Alyona’s murder, met her suspicious neighbor and summoned her to the police station for questioning.

Among the beautiful sentences of famous books, Dostoevsky’s work has a special place. The following are the sentences in the book Crime and Rewards:

The darker the night, the brighter the stars, and the deeper the grief, the closer God is!

Suffering is always inevitable for a great intelligence and a deep heart. I think great men should have great sorrow on earth.

Doing smart requires more than intelligence.

Taking a step and saying a new word is what people are most afraid of.

When the intellect fails, the devil helps!

The more I drink, the more I feel; This is my reason! I try to find empathy and feeling in drinking. I drink to maybe twice as much!

What do you think, does not a small crime be destroyed by thousands of good deeds?

You do not know how much ignorance anger can lead to!

Love had revived them both. Each other’s hearts were an eternal source of life for each other.

It is never made from a hundred horse rabbits, nor from a hundred suspicions of real evidence.

Power only goes to those who try to take it. The only thing that matters is having courage!

Everything has a limit that it is dangerous to go through, because once it is stepped beyond, it becomes impossible to return.

Clever people make mistakes sooner rather than later. The smarter a person is; The less he thinks, the less he gets stuck, and the smarter people happen to be stuck with the easiest things.

From the lasting sentences of the book Crime and Rewards:

Most importantly, do not lie to yourself. A person who lies to himself and hears his own lies reaches a point where he cannot discern the truth within himself or around him, so he loses all attention and respect for himself and others, and without respect, he ceases to love.

He who has a conscience will suffer if he realizes his mistake, and this is more punishment for him than hard work.

It is noteworthy that most of the benefactors and founders of the principles of humanity were extremely bloodthirsty people! I mean everyone, not just adults; Even those who are just a little out of the ordinary or those who have little ability to say something new. As a rule, they should be more or less aggressive by nature. Otherwise, it is difficult for them to get out of their four walls and stay in that frame because of their nature. They can not be satisfied.

It is better to tell a lie in your own style than to imitate another truth! In the first case you are human and in the second case you only look like a parrot.

Poverty is not a sin, comrade. let it go. It is clear that the cracker can not withstand the pressure. You must have been upset with them for some reason and you could not stop yourself!

To identify everyone, one must deal with them gradually and carefully so as not to make mistakes and slips, which are difficult to fix later.

Everyone should be able to take refuge somewhere because there are cases when it is necessary for a person to be able to go somewhere or wherever he is.

We see a beautiful text from the book Crime and Rewards:

Nothing in the world is harder than real intimacy and frankness, and nothing is easier than flattery. If only one hundredth of it is incorrect in frankness and intimacy. Immediately a special imbalance is heard and a commotion arises; But if all the components of flattery are incorrect, it is still pleasant and relatively pleasant to hear. . It does not matter to all the people of every class and to whatever level of civilization they want to be, to the ordinary people who have their place.
