Crime and Punishment is the second of Dostoyevsky's full-length novels following his return from ten years of exile in Siberia and the first great novel of his "golden" period of writing. The novel focuses on the moral dilemmas of Rodion Raskolnikov, an impoverished ex-student in St. Petersburg who formulates and executes a plan to kill an unscrupulous pawnbroker. Raskolnikov argues that with the pawnbroker's money he can perform good deeds to counterbalance the crime, while ridding the world of a worthless vermin. He also commits this murder to test his own hypothesis that some people are naturally capable of such things, and even have the right to do them. He justifies his actions by comparing himself with Napoleon Bonaparte, believing that murder is permissible in pursuit of a "higher" purpose.
