The Extraordinary-Man Theory In “Crime and Punishment”

"Crime and Punishment" is one of the most significant novels of F. Dostoevsky. It is a philosophical, psychological, social, ideological study.

The central image of the novel is Raskolnikov - a young man with an attractive appearance, student who was excluded from the University because of his poverty. The only source of his existence was the money sent him by his rather poor mother. He had no job, no friends willing to help. This condition troubled the character very much, that had a negative impact on his ailing mind.

Raskolnikov saw the injustice of the world, the burdens of other people's lives. He wanted to change the world for the better.

Driven to extreme desperation, Raskolnikov brought the terrible idea that in achieving the noble goal any strong-willed people had the right to remove all obstacles in their path by any way, including robbery and murder. He wrote an article, which set out his theory. He believed that there were two main groups of people: on the "usual" and "extraordinary" people who could not live under the general laws, they had the right to commit crimes in order to fulfill their good purpose.

Once in the power of his ideas, he identified himself as "an extraordinary" personality and, following his theory, he planned to kill the greedy old woman money-lender, and to take her money to do good deeds, such as rescuing from poverty and miserable existence of his relatives. But, despite the fact that Raskolnikov justified this idea of his theory, he did not immediately decide to kill. The fierce internal struggle took place in the soul of the hero. On the one hand, he was convinced of the truth of his theory, on the other hand – he could not transcend his own conscience. However, recently he believed the weakness that must be overcome.

Raskolnikov's dream was stronger, and he decided to commit a crime, but decided not to make money, but in order to "check himself", the ability to transcend his life, as did Napoleon and Mohammed. He killed, not wanting to put up with the moral standards of the world. Raskolnikov seemed that by this murder he threw a symbolic challenge to all of the slave morality, which the people submitted from immemorial time. But the murder of an old woman money-lender discovered that the self-confident, proud dream of domination was hiding in Raskolnikov. Dreamer is a potential Napoleon, bearing a threat to humanity. Thus, the circle of thought and action of Raskolnikov tragically closed.

"Crime and Punishment" is one of the most significant novels of F. Dostoevsky. It is a philosophical, psychological, social, ideological study.

The central image of the novel is Raskolnikov - a young man with an attractive appearance, student who was excluded from the University because of his poverty.

Good writer understood the assignment. The only issue was repetitive word choices and an occasional wonky sentence structure. But they were easy fixes.
